In the past, digestive disorders that could not be well-managed with medication required conventional open surgery performed through large incisions. Today, many of these illnesses can be treated using minimally invasive approaches that make small incisions and, in many cases, no external incisions at all. Some of these procedures will allow you to go home the same day and avoid complications, infections, and higher costs. Our doctors also use minimally invasive surgery to free patients from their reliance on medications and restore comfort and quality of life.
