Masterful Technique with a Personal Touch

Our USC Surgery team has one mission: to give you the best possible care. We conduct research and test the latest technology to find better, safer treatments. We have been national leaders in using minimally invasive techniques to give our patients the best possible outcomes. We also perform a high number of robot-assisted surgeries each year, making us experts in this advanced technique.

You are the most important part of our practice, and you will always be at the center of your care. We work in teams with medical doctors, nurses and staff to keep you informed and supported every step of the way.
