The LES Treatment Philosophy

“To tailor treatment to the individual patient to have the quickest recovery and return to a painfree lifestyle. If surgery is chosen, use Less Exposure Surgery techniques and technologies that lessen exposure proportionate to the problem and the patient, preserve unoffending anatomy, and utilize fundamental principles adapted to new technologies which are safe, easy to adopt, reproducible and lessen blood loss, surgical time, and exposure to radiation. The aim is to achieve maximal effectiveness for a rapid and less painful outpatient recovery. Less is more.” – Kingsley R. Chin, MD

The LES Society Mission for Outpatient Surgery

The Less Exposure Surgery Society seeks to advance research, education and technology for tissue sparing outpatient surgeries that allow ease of application for the surgeon and improved outcome for the patient.
