“Many procedures can be managed effectively without resorting to surgery. Surgery should be as minimally invasive as possible, for less discomfort, shorter recovery times and to reduce post-operative pain. My goal is to support patients in gaining their lives back, by using the most advanced minimally invasive techniques.”
