Complex Surgery for Digestive Disorders

Nearly 70 million Americans suffer from digestive disorders that occur in the esophagus, liver, and pancreas including reflux, cancers, and many more. These conditions can profoundly affect the quality of life of those affected.

We offer minimally invasive and robotic surgical options for a variety of digestive disorders and cancers. These operations provide better patient outcomes with less risk of complications, less pain and a faster recovery. Our physicians and surgeons are located in the same practice, providing seamless transitions throughout your care. 

Our passion for providing excellent care is rooted in our commitment to clinical research. Dr. Sharona Ross was one of the first surgeons in the U.S. to undertake Laparo-Endoscopic Single Site (LESS) surgery, and continues to develop new techniques and instrumentation to improve its safety and application. Our surgeons actively use many of the latest clinical trials as they seek to provide the best possible treatment options.
