We use the most up to date medical equipment used in the testing and treatment of medical and surgical conditions. Most surgery can be performed with minimal discomfort on a out-patient basis, and in some cases, with no incisions. Minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more dime-sized incisions, with much less trauma to the body. Minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures result in little or no scarring from surgery.
