Dr. Kondrup tells us why his passion for Minimally Invasive Surgery for Women is so strong: Dr. Kondrup states,

“Almost immediately I noticed a huge void in fertility services and Minimally Invasive Surgery.” “Almost every surgery was being performed via laparotomy (large abdominal incisions). I want women to know that they often have the option to undergo Minimally Invasive Surgery (surgery performed through small incisions) to reduce scarring, pain and to return to their normal lives more quickly.”
