Our Minimally Invasive Surgery Center

About Our Center MMC Min Invasive SurgeryAt Monmouth Medical Center, the indications and outcomes of laparoscopic surgery are carefully determined by the mature judgment of experienced, board-certified surgeons. Monmouth's Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery offers surgeons who rank among the nation's most experienced advanced laparoscopic practitioners - and this experience allows them to tailor the procedure to the patient rather than the patient to the procedure. In real estate, the mantra is "location, location, location," but in surgery, it always should be "safety, safety, safety." Leading this surgical team is the director of laparoscopy for the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery at Monmouth Medical Center, board-certified surgeon Frank J. Borao, M.D., FACS. Dr. Borao is fellowship trained in advanced laparoscopic surgery and is among the few surgeons in the region capable of performing laparoscopic gastric bypass for morbid obesity. Dr. Borao - who has published techniques of laparoscopic gastric bypass - is joined by a number of prominent Monmouth Medical Center general, colon and rectal, urologic and pediatric surgeons. And because the latest technical tools are necessary for state-of-the-art performance, Monmouth's surgical suites are equipped with the most advanced laparoscopes, video cameras, light sources and other specially designed surgical instruments.
