Our surgeons complete more than 6,000 surgical procedures every year, which gives us the experience needed to make your surgery successful and get you on the road to recovery.

Types of surgery we offer

  • General surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery

Minimally invasive surgery

Many of our surgical procedures are minimally invasive because our surgeons use laparoscopic surgical techniques. This allows them 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. Our surgeons are able to use it in ways that offer you precision and accuracy.

Additional benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Reduced trauma to the body
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • 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
  • Nissen fundoplication
  • Colectomy
  • Prostatectomy

Outpatient surgery

We are proud to offer a specialized same-day surgery program. As in all our surgical programs, 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.
