Building on the foundation of minimally invasive surgeries, the division members were the first to perform robotic ventral hernia repairs, and now expanding to colorectal cancer surgeries.
We also have a robust Acute Care Surgical program run by dedicated surgeons specializing in the laparoscopic management of acute surgical problems, to support our high-volume emergency department. We are expanding the surgical portfolio to include endocrine tumour management.
