About Us

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Northwest offers patients advanced surgical techniques in a compassionate, professional environment. We understand that undergoing any type of surgery is stressful. We work with each patient and family to determine the safest and most effective procedure for the best possible outcome. Our surgeons look beyond the surgical procedure: they are committed to patient education, understanding, comfort and cure.

Our services are provided in the beautiful Northwest Specialty Hospital in Post Falls, Idaho, which boasts top grades for surgical excellence and patient satisfaction. We also provide services at Kootenai Medical Center and Shoshone Medical Center. As surgeons, we specialize in the surgery of the gastrointestinal tract, endoscopy, management of benign and malignant breast disease, cancer surgery, and hernia repair.
