RESEARCH FOCUS. OUTCOMES DRIVEN.

The Less Exposure Surgery Society is leading the charge to prove through bench and clinical outcomes research that Less Exposure Surgery (LES) treatment options that are now more and more being done safely and routinely in an ambulatory surgery center are the best solutions to lowering the cost of healthcare improving outcomes, and patient satisfaction. By encouraging surgeons to believe that LESS is MORE we are also driven to grow our membership to ensure that we maintain a quality treatment standard through education and networking and performing multi center research studies globally.
