"I am a committed laparascopic surgeon who has recognized very early the advantages of minimally invasive surgery over open procedures: less complications and pain, shorter hospitalization, faster recuperation, and better aesthetic results. I have contributed in the development and establishment of 14 different minimally invasive procedures through peer-reviewed publications and have published 3 textbooks on laparascopic surgery. I offer a broad spectrum of advanced laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of a variety of ailments both common and rare." Dr. Frantzides has served as professor and director of minimally invasive surgery programs in institutions such as the University of Chicago and Northwestern University.
