Laparoscopic News – Robotic News
Welcome to our Surgical Oasis Laparoscopic News and Surgical Robotic News.
In this blog I’d like to share the latest news and information in regards to robotic and laparoscopic surgery. The mission of this website is to fully educate the patients and discuss their most common questions and concerns about minimally invasive surgery. Since the deterioration of patient physician relationship in our new medical system was the main reason to create this site, my goal is to restore the trust and loyalty among us by being extremely informative, caring and truthful. Enjoy!
