The most gratifying part of my job is helping patients experience a greatly improved quality of life.
The term minimally invasive surgery means using tiny incisions to perform procedures previously done with large incisions. Its purpose is minimizing trauma to the body allowing for shorter recovery times and usually discharge on the day of surgery. Patients can recover in the comfort of their own homes instead of having multi-day stays in the hospital.
