We offer a full range of surgical services in almost every medical specialty — everything from general surgery to treat colorectal cancer, gastroesophageal reflux and hernias, to minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgical options.
Minimally invasive options
CMMC’s surgeons are recognized for their expertise in minimally invasive procedures. By using miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high-definition monitors, surgeons can perform surgery through small incisions that take only a few stitches to close. Smaller incisions result in less blood loss, less pain and a quicker recovery. We offer:
- Arthroscopic surgery
- Endovascular techniques (catheter-guided procedures)
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Laser surgery
- Robotic surgery

We work closely with patients, families and their primary care doctors to ensure that we answer every question and address every concern. At CMMC, our focus is on patient safety, care and comfort.
