Minimally invasive surgical techniques require methods and instruments that are small.  When combined with robotic surgery, Gregory Ward, M.D., performs procedures with precision and flexibility.  As assistant professor at Saint Louis University Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Oncology, Ward helped SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital become the first in the region to offer a flexible robotic system. The less invasive surgery is called the Flex Robotic System, essentially robot-assisted surgery, by Medrobotics.
