Robotic surgery

The surgical suites at our hospital are equipped with robot-assisted surgical systems, offering patients access to the least invasive surgical options available. Robotic surgery is a less invasive technique compared to traditional, open surgery because it requires very small incisions.

  • Faster recovery time
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine after surgery

Our surgical facilities and programs

We want to ensure you receive the comfort and attention you need before and after surgery. 

Dedicated care throughout your surgical experience

Our hospital includes a preoperative holding area where you are prepared for your procedure and visited by your surgeon and anesthesiologist for any questions before surgery. Following surgery, you will be moved to the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) for monitoring as the effects of anesthesia wear off. Patients remain in the PACU for their initial recovery time.


Transportation, lodging and convenience (TLC) program

We know it can be stressful to coordinate all of the early morning details on the day of your surgery. To ease your mind, we have created our TLC program at a fixed fee to provide concierge services, including transportation to and from the hospital, access to your patient room the night before surgery and dinner the evening before surgery.

If you would like to learn more about this program, please call (941) 525-6775.
