Bio-Summary

Dr. Sarmiento's innovative treatments include a minimally-invasive approach to liver surgery (the only one in the state and one of very few in the country) and laparoscopic surgery of the pancreas. With Dr. Edward Lin, Dr. Sarmiento developed unique techniques for laparoscopic-assisted formal liver resections, such as the performance of laparoscopic hepatectomy through incisions that are much smaller than those of a standard open procedure. Originally from Colombia, Dr. Sarmiento came to the U.S. in 1995 for further surgical training at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, where he joined the faculty once his training was completed.
