Surgery

Surgery is a branch of medicine that involves treating diseases or injuries by adjusting or removing organs, tissues or bones. Surgery includes both necessary procedures like cardiac surgery, or elective procedures such as joint replacement.

Heart and vascular surgery

Our cardiac surgeons care for heart disease, valve disorders, heart arrhythmias and people in need of surgery following a stroke or heart attack. In addition to traditional open-heart surgery, we offer several minimally invasive options for cardiac surgery, allowing for a faster recovery time and less postoperative pain. In addition, the surgical team performs minimally invasive coronary artery bypass graft procedures and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Hernia repair surgery

We treat all types of hernias, including epigastric, umbilical, incisional, spigelian, inguinal and femoral hernias. Hernia repair surgery involves placing expanded tissues back in their correct position and strengthening the weakened area of the abdominal wall where the hernia is present. Hernia repairs at our hospital are performed through traditional surgery, laparoscopy or robotic surgery.

Orthopedic surgery

Often, the best treatment option for an injury or condition of a bone or joint is orthopedic surgery. The orthopedic surgeons at our hospital perform joint replacement procedures, including hip, knee and shoulder replacements. We also surgically treat traumatic hand injuries.

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery is one type of minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery offers patients many benefits, such as a shorter recovery time, shorter hospital stay and less postoperative pain. Robotic surgery is performed using several small incisions, instead of one large incision. Advanced surgical instruments are manipulated through small incisions, resulting in increased surgical dexterity and visualization.
