Surgical Solutions

Many of the listed surgical procedures can be performed with very small incisions. We specialize in the use of laparoscopic surgery techniques including the 3mm mini laparoscope for many of the surgeries that we perform.

This affords our patients a faster recovery, decreased pain and earlier return to normal activity. Please inquire regarding whether your particular surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques.
