Pioneers in Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery, which offers a number of advantages to patients versus the more common, open procedures. With these newer techniques, our surgeons use a variety of approaches to operate with less injury to the body. 

In general, laparoscopic surgery is safer than traditional surgery and allows you to recover faster and heal with less pain and scarring. Laparoscopic procedures are often performed on an outpatient basis or require only a short hospital stay.
