Minimally Invasive Surgery
Frederick Sabido, M.D., F.A.C.S., Division Chief
Surgery isn’t what it used to be thanks to the use of minimally invasive surgery. This division of surgery allows the use of a tiny camera inserted through an incision to visualize the surgical site with increased precision and less trauma to the body. This technique can be used in general surgery, gynecologic surgery, urological surgery and thoracic surgery.
Division Chief Dr. Fred Sabido is specifically trained for this technique. He is an active member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), an organization committed to the advancement of endoscopic surgery, and founder of the Richmond University Medical Center Minimally Invasive Surgical Fellowship, which offers training in all phases of minimally invasive surgery including single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS).
