Areas of Specialty for General, Breast and Endocrine Surgery Conditions

Doctors Allen A. Agapay, William R. Friese and Jordan J. Glenn share many years of experience successfully treating a broad range of conditions with minimally invasive techniques. They are trained in both laparoscopic procedures and traditional open surgery, and work closely with each patient to determine which treatment will provide the best results for his or her condition.

Their goal is to provide the least invasive surgical option possible. Minimally invasive surgery offers the benefits of quicker recovery time, less postoperative pain, and minimized scarring.
