Surgeons in West Palm Beach

Our surgeons provide exceptional surgical care for patients in West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities.

We understand how stressful it can be to learn you have to have surgery. At HCA Florida JFK North Hospital, we make it our goal to provide you with compassionate and effective treatment. Our doctors are trained to provide minimally invasive surgical procedures for a range of conditions, including breast cancer biopsies and breast imaging procedures. No matter what your unique needs are, our doctors are committed to helping you feel your best again.

Our surgical services

We offer a variety of minimally invasive treatment options for our patients.

Minimally invasive surgery

Our doctors are skilled at performing minimally invasive surgeries. These types of surgeries involve smaller incisions and less overall damage to the tissue surrounding the area of your surgery. Some examples of minimally invasive procedures include laparoscopies and robot-assisted surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery is also a great alternative to traditional or "open" surgeries because it allows for:

  • Faster recovery times
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine after surgery
  • Less scarring
  • Less trauma to the surrounding tissues and structures
  • Reduced pain
  • Shorter hospital stays

If you need access to other types of surgery, we make it convenient through our HCA Florida Healthcare family of hospitals across the state.
