At Baptist Health South Florida, our general surgeons are nationally recognized as pioneers in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery. We offer a complete range of minimally invasive surgical procedures, from hernia repairs, gallbladder and colon surgery, to bariatric surgery.

Our minimally invasive surgery experts use techniques to limit the size and number of incisions during surgery. That means quicker recovery from surgery with less pain. We also perform complex robotic surgery when appropriate.

Because of our commitment to research, innovation and quality, you have access to the most advanced treatments available.
