Optimizing Outcomes and Recovery Time
For Dr. Mitch Dizon, making sure patients receive quality care through minimally invasive processes and procedures is of the utmost importance. “There’s no better reward than a patient coming to see me after a surgery and telling me that their life has been greatly improved,” says Dr. Dizon. “I want women to have the safest and least invasive options for surgery while simultaneously improving their outcomes and recovery time.” As new advancements in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery arise, Dr. Dizon enjoys being able to provide women who previously thought they could not have surgery with updated options for care.
