When donating on-line, please choose "Dr. A Singh Minimally Invasive Surgery" under gift designation. All money raised would go toward the development of a robust clinical trials program in minimally invasive surgery and towards equipment that can support this initiative. This impact will be far reaching as the development of minimally invasive techniques will allow animals undergoing these procedures to have less pain after surgery, have a faster return to function and a lower complication rate.
