Dr. Acosta's Care Philosophy

As a trained fellow in minimally invasive surgery and advanced laparoscopy at the University of Louisville, special emphasis has been placed in the surgical treatment of patients using minimally invasive techniques. The use of a laparoscope and operating through small incisions leads to a better outcome in regards to patient recovery, decreased pain and improved cosmesis.
