Dr. Swanger did an outstanding job on my daughter's laparoscopic procedure to address her endometriosis. He also identified a previously undetected cyst on her ovary. His skills enabled him to do the procedure with only two ingress sites. He was also very personable and detailed briefing us post-op as she was in recovery.
