Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kocay "Dr. Dean Kocay has comprehensive experience performing general surgical procedures for many conditions. Whenever medically possible, Dr. Kocay performs minimally invasive surgery, or laparoscopic surgery, which requires smaller incisions than traditional surgery. Laparoscopy surgery is safer to perform and generally reduces the length of hospital stays and recovery times. Dr. Kocay is also experienced with traditional (open) surgery. Above all, treatment is chosen to meet a patient's individual needs. Dr. Kocay offers a collaborative approach to patient care, working closely with colleagues in other surgical and medical specialties to find the best treatment approach for each patient."
