Types of surgery we provide

Over 6,000 surgical procedures are completed in our hospital every year. Types of surgery we offer include:

Minimally invasive surgery

Many of our surgical procedures are minimally invasive, using laparoscopic surgical techniques. This allows our surgeons to perform surgeries through tiny incisions.

We offer minimally invasive surgery in the following areas:

  • General surgery
  • Gastroenterology surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Urologic surgery

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery allows your surgeon to operate using robotic arms and a 3D display of the surgical field. The surgeon uses a control below the display to move the robotic arms. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments. This also allows your surgeon to operate with greater vision, precision and control.

Additional benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Reduced trauma to the body
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
  • Less scarring

Robotic surgery procedures we offer

Robotic technology can be used to perform many different procedures. Those we offer include:

  • Cholecystectomy
  • Esophageal/diaphragmatic hernia repair
  • Robotic Nissen fundoplication
  • Robotic colectomy
  • Robotic prostatectomy

Outpatient surgery

We are proud to offer a specialized same-day surgery program. Our goal is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible before, during and after your procedure, while getting you home to heal as quickly as possible. Our outpatient surgery brochure includes a pre-surgery checklist and answers questions about topics such as anesthesia, pre-admission screening and what to expect on the day of your procedure.
