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

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