William S. Cobb, IV, M.D.
Program Director, Minimally Invasive Surgery Fellowship Program
Welcome to the Minimally Invasive Surgery Fellowship Program at the Greenville Health System (GHS). Advances in laparoscopic surgery and endoscopic surgery are rapidly changing the practice of surgery. Less invasive approaches to traditional surgical problems provide patients with less pain, better cosmesis, and earlier recovery. The fellowship program at GHS strives to provide patients with the latest technology in minimal access surgery and educate the region in advanced laparoscopic techniques.
Your training will incorporate both didactic education and technical instruction in the areas of general surgery that are amenable to minimal access techniques. When you finish our program, you will be well equipped to utilize laparoscopic and endoscopic approaches in hernia, foregut and solid organ pathology, and bariatrics. You will possess the skills to provide the latest surgical technology to your patients in any general surgery practice.
