General and Gastrointestinal Surgery
At Mass General, minimally invasive surgery—also called laparoscopic surgery—is our preferred surgical approach.
Using high-definition imaging technology and precision instruments, our surgeons work through a few tiny incisions to perform thousands of these procedures each year. This high-volume experience means better outcomes for patients and helps our surgeons lead new innovations in the field.
I would describe my entire care team as compassionate and caring. I can’t say enough how important they were to me in those first difficult days.
