Minimally Invasive Surgery
If surgery is the best treatment for your condition, rely on your surgeon to use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. This means that your doctor will use tiny tools and make smaller incisions. You’ll experience less pain and scarring and recover quicker when your surgeon uses this technique.
