Dr. Winfield is a pioneer in the area of minimally invasive surgery. He was the first in the world to perform a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, and he was one of the first in the world to use the da Vinci Surgical System, a robot-assisted device that allows the surgeon to perform incredibly delicate procedures. He has performed thousands of surgeries using minimally invasive techniques, and he has trained scores of physicians in the use of the da Vinci Surgical System.
