Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery

Welcome to the practice of Dr. Marc Zaré, specializing in minimally invasive surgery. With minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery, simple to complex operations of the gastrointestinal system can be performed using very small incisions, thereby reducing complication rates, minimizing discomfort, and shortening recovery times. Dr. Zaré believes that modern surgery should be innovative, non-invasive, and patient-centered. Our mission is to provide every patient compassionate care based on sound scientific evidence, and we strive to ensure that the surgical experience of every patient is unique and meaningful.
