Patient Testimonials

Dr. Steve is a caring person, a very competent surgeon and an all-around good guy. And, when he is not caring for his patients until the wee hours of the evening, you might find him scoring goals at the Braemar Arena in Edina!

Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is the newest innovation in the field of general surgery and has become the standard of care for many surgical procedures. The surgeon uses a tiny camera to operate inside the body through a small lighted telescope connected to a video monitor. Because incisions are very small, laparoscopic surgery usually means outpatient surgery and a faster patient recovery time.
