Minimally Invasive Cancer Surgery
An increasing amount of cancer surgery can also be carried out safely,
quickly, and efficiently through a number of small incisions known as
minimally invasive surgery (MIS). We apply these cutting edge techniques while never compromising the principles
of cancer surgery.
We offer minimally invasive surgery for cancer of the
colon and rectum, and
peritoneal malignancies. The common feature shared by all of these procedures is that laparoscopic
surgery allows for less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay,
and minimal scarring.
Every patient is evaluated in consultation if they are a candidate of MIS.
