- Any surgical procedure or consultation can be a stressful event in your life. We believe that this stress can be eliminated through good communication. We want our patients to be informed and also active in making treatment decisions. We will meet with you and your family to explain procedures and recommend treatment plans. We will also review the alternatives, discuss the associated risks and benefits, and answer all of your questions.

We have an outstanding reputation in the treatment of benign and malignant breast disease. We work in collaboration with medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, and plastic surgeons to ensure a multidisciplinary strategy for our patients.
- Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), is a modern surgical technique. Abdominal operations are performed through small one to two inch incisions, as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures. Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities. There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus an open procedure. These include reduced blood loss, smaller incisions, less pain, and shorter recovery time.
- Different types of computer-assisted surgical systems can be used for pre-operative planning, surgical navigation and to assist in performing surgical procedures. Robotically-assisted surgical (RAS) devices are one type of computer-assisted surgical system. Sometimes referred to as robotic surgery, RAS devices enable the surgeon to use computer and software technology to control and move surgical instruments through one or more tiny incisions in the patient’s body (minimally invasive) for a variety of surgical procedures.
