Minimally Invasive Surgery

A focus on minimally invasive surgical techniques for colorectal surgery contributes to our enhanced clinical outcomes and high satisfaction ratings.
 
Patients generally benefit from:
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery
  • Fewer complications
  • Better cosmetic results

Single-site Laparoscopic Surgery

Among our many surgical innovations is the use of single-site laparoscopic surgery, for colon resection. This is an advanced platform in which the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s naval.

  • Supporting surgeons with the latest minimally invasive technology
