Surgery has evolved greatly over the last several decades, allowing operations once done with large, open incisions to now being performed through very small incisions with the assistance of robotic or laparoscopic technology. Minimally invasive approaches allow for shorter recovery times, helping patients to get back to their lives as quickly as possible.

CMU Health is leading Saginaw in the breadth of minimally invasive surgery and technology offerings for the Great Lakes Bay Region. Our services range from basic procedures such as gallbladder surgery, to complex operations such as combined liver and colon resections and robotic Whipple procedure for pancreas cancer.

Our surgery department offers fellowship-trained minimally invasive surgeons to perform modern procedures previously unavailable in the region. We provide robotic and laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery for a wide variety of conditions at two local hospital systems – Ascension St. Mary’s and Covenant HealthCare – in Saginaw. CMU Surgery is proud to be the only surgical group in Mid-Michigan that offers robotic liver and pancreas resections.
