Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pohlman "I focus on minimally invasive surgical treatment of a number of conditions. This approach minimizes discomfort and recovery time, allowing return to normal activity as soon as possible. Advances such as robotic surgery and puncture incision laparoscopy (PILS) allow even smaller incisions and improved safety."

Patient Comments (3)

I would not recommend Pohlman as he did not follow up which never happened to me after surgery. He seems to be an assembly line surgeon. Not personal, never even came while I was in recovery.
