Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery: The Time Has Come

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) offers multiple outcome advantages including less pain, faster recovery, and lower incidence of wound complications compared to open surgery. In this webinar, Dr. Albo provides evidence to support the improvements in patient outcomes with MIS for colorectal surgery.
