From the Doctor:
I do most of my operations using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and laparoscopic surgery. The same operation is done but with a smaller incision. There are a number of advantages to laparoscopic surgery including reduced pain, a lower rate of complications and a shorter recovery time. Patients also love that there's no large scar after surgery. My favorite part of being a surgeon is educating patients, helping them through a major event in their life and guiding them back to health and wellness.
