Glendale Adventist Medical Center's "Live Well Senior Program" to Host Free Lecture on Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS)

Glendale Adventist Medical Center's "Live Well Senior Program" will offer a free lecture on Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) on Monday, May 14 from Noon to 1 PM at the hospital (Main Auditorium), 1509 Wilson Terrace, Glendale.

Sam H. Carvajal, MD, FACS will be the presenter. He specializes in General Surgery and Vascular Surgery. Advanced Laparoscopic, Gastrointestinal and Oncologic Surgery as well as SILS.

The program supports an expanding community of content, services and engagement tools, as well as comprehensive financial, health and wellness decision-making.
