The purpose

The investigators will document the success for completing laparoscopic resection of cancer in the right colon using a new single port access technique. The current procedure requires 4 incisions for 4 separate ports. With technological advancement of newly designed instruments it is now possible to do the same laparoscopic procedure through a single port. The investigators want to demonstrate here in British Columbia that it is a safe procedure with similar success and outcomes compared to the standard 4-port laparoscopic operation. The investigators propose that this procedure may provide early discharge due to less pain and also be associated with less wound infection and hernia complications. The single incision will have improved cosmesis compared to the standard 4-port standard laparoscopic procedure.
