Minimally Invasive Procedures

At Shore Physicians Group, we offer minimally invasive procedures for operations such as laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and laparoscopic ventral/incisional hernia repair. Many other procedures are also performed with a minimally invasive approach such as stereotactic and ultrasound guided breast biopsy.  All of these procedures are superior in that there is less pain, less scarring and a much quicker recovery.
