GAMC Most Experienced in SILSâ„¢ Technique Glendale, California (CA) - Glendale Adventist Medical Center

Leading the charge is Sam Carvajal, MD, general surgeon at GAMC, who has been performing advanced laparascopic and telescopic procedures for many years. As one of the pioneers in SILS™, he was the first surgeon in the world to perform a gall bladder removal using flexible scopes and specially designed SILS™ instruments through a tiny incision in the belly button.
"What makes the SILS procedure so great is the lack of scars," says Dr. Carvajal. "The incisions are cosmetically indetectable. Many patients also report less pain and less recovery time after their procedures."
Currently, SILS™ is commonly used in GI procedures, such as gall bladder removals, appendectomies and colectomies. However, Dr. Carvajal is researching ways to use SILS™ in other areas of the body. Recently, he used SILS™ to remove liver tumors from a cancer patient. SILS™ has also been used in procedures for patients with colorectal cancer.
"There is so much potential in SILS™," he says.
