Dr. Casavant works diligently to educate himself and his patients on the best diagnostic, medical, and surgical options available.

He has been a pioneer in minimally invasive surgery for over 10 years now. He is frequently referred to for patients who are in need of advanced procedures requiring unconventional surgery and incredible need for detail.

Many of the procedures that he offers are done right in our surgical suite in the main office.
