Types of conditions our surgeons treat

Ensuring you have access to comprehensive surgical care is one of our priorities. Our surgeons specialize in treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Appendicitis
  • Cataracts
  • Gastrointestinal issues

Surgical services we offer

From minimally invasive techniques to traditional, open surgeries, our skilled surgeons are equipped to perform a range of procedures. We tailor your treatment plan to your unique needs, providing you with the best possible outcome.

Types of surgical procedures we offer

Our surgeons use the latest technologies and techniques to perform a range of surgeries, including:

  • Cataract surgery
  • Gastrointestinal surgery, including colon surgery and gallbladder removal
  • General surgery, including adenoidectomy, appendectomy and tonsillectomy
  • Gynecological surgery, including breast surgery and procedures related to the reproductive system
  • Orthopedic surgery, including joint replacement and spine care
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery, including liposuction, face lifts and breast augmentation
  • Prostate surgery, including prostatectomy or resection of the prostate

Endoscopy

Your doctor may recommend a minimally invasive procedure using an endoscope to diagnose a condition or confirm the effectiveness of treatment. An endoscope is a thin tube with a camera and light on the end that is used to help doctors examine different parts of the body. Examples of endoscopic procedures we perform include:

  • Biopsies, which remove a cell or tissue sample to check for cancer
  • Colonoscopies, which examine the large and small bowel via colonoscope
  • Bronchoscopies, which examine the lungs and air passages via bronchoscope
  • Esophagus scopes, which examine the esophagus, stomach and upper duodenum via endoscope
  • PH monitoring, which measures how often stomach acid enters the esophagus

Robotic surgery

Through robot-assisted technology, our surgeons can operate with greater precision using smaller incisions than traditional surgery. Benefits include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays

During robot-assisted surgery, your surgeon sits at a control panel and guides the surgical instruments. This console provides a 3D, high-definition view of your anatomy with accurate depth perception, and it allows the surgeon to control the robotic arms. These arms manipulate tissue with more dexterity and accuracy than what is humanly possible.

We offer robotic surgery in the following areas:

  • General surgery, including gallbladder removal, hernia repair and colon resection
  • Gynecology, including hysterectomies, myomectomies and surgeries for uterine conditions
  • Urology, including prostatectomies and other types of surgery for prostate cancer

Rehabilitation after surgery

For many patients, physical therapy  is an important part of the recovery process. If needed, we can connect you with a professional who will provide guidance on the best ways to restore strength, balance and mobility after your procedure. We also offer neurorehabilitation, a special type of neurological care tailored to manage symptoms related to disorders affecting the central nervous system.
