Unlike a traditional multi-port laparoscopic approach, SPL leaves only a single small scar. Also known as single incision laparoscopic surgery (or SILS), the procedure is essentially scarless because the incision is hidden within the umbilicus.

Dr. Sergio Verboonen’s extensive experience and advanced skill set provide you with an unparalleled level of expertise. Providing the benefits of fewer scars, less pain, and shorter recovery periods, SILS is one of the newest laparoscopic techniques and it is regarded as minimally invasive. In general, the SILS techniques take about the same amount of time to do as traditional laparoscopic surgeries.
