About Mark Toyama

Dr. Toyama believes that a straight-forward, clear-thinking approach to surgical disease not only is the best way to treat the problem, but also is the best way to keep a patient informed. As a surgeon, Dr. Toyama weds his extensive expertise in advanced laparoscopic surgery, including the largest experience in laparoscopic hernia repairs available at Northwestern, to a belief that operations must be tailored to the particular needs of a patient.
