General Surgery

Electing to undergo surgery can be a challenging, and oftentimes scary, undertaking. However, opposed to traditional, “open” surgery, minimally invasive surgery has a multitude of benefits, including:

  • Less pain
  • Lower risks of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recoveries and return to work
