General Surgery
Patient Demographics: Adult, Elderly

"General surgery has changed drastically in the last few years. Nowadays, one is able to perform complex procedures through almost invisible incisions. I am a strong believer that these types of minimally invasive surgeries can decrease pain, accelerate recuperation, and should be offered to the patient today. For this, I am always on top of the newest techniques that can improve the results and quality of life of my patients."
