Minimally Invasive Surgery at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital
While minimally invasive procedures are easier on patients, they often are more difficult for doctors to perform than open surgery. If you are facing the possibility of surgery, look for a physician - like the surgical specialists at MedStar Union Memorial - who has extensive experience in performing similar procedures. The more procedures they have performed, the greater the likelihood that you'll make the right choice.
