Dr. Marx regularly attends training and education in any new techniques available. Currently, approximately 90% of his practice is laparoscopic surgery, with most of his surgeries being Robotic-Assisted. In 2010, Dr. Marx was the only one in the area to offer the single-incision or “scarless” gallbladder surgery. In 2012, Dr. Marx was trained by the DaVinci Group to operate using the newest technology available-the DaVinci Robot. He was the first surgeon to offer this to the people of Northeast Louisiana. This is still laparoscopic surgery that utilizes the special skills and benefits that Robotic-Assisted surgery can provide.
Dr. Marx does a large amount of advanced surgery such as colon resections for cancer and other abnormalities of the colon. He performs many of these procedures per year with an above average volume that is directly linked to positive outcomes. Dr. Marx's practice is a current epicenter for teaching Robotic surgery . He travels at least quarterly to Houston to train other surgeons from across the country as instructor in a Master's Class for Advanced Robotic surgical techniques.
Dr. Marx also maintains several affiliations to keep him current. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons, and the Ouachita and Louisiana State Medical Society. He was Chief of Surgery for three years at St. Francis North Hospital and is currently Director of Surgery at Monroe Surgical Hospital.
