Surgical services

Surgery is the medical treatment of diseases or injuries with instruments used to influence the body. Surgery is used to correct injuries and improve function as a medical necessity or on an elective basis, including some plastic surgery procedures.

We offer:

  • Breast surgery
  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Gastrointestinal and colorectal surgery
  • Gynecologic Surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Urologic surgery

Types of surgery

We offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Minimally invasive surgery

Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopy, laparoscopy and robot-assisted surgery. These surgeries can often be outpatient procedures. Minimally invasive surgery offers patients many benefits compared to traditional surgery, including:

  • Fewer scars
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Smaller incisions
Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery allows our surgeons to perform complex surgeries with extreme accuracy and only a few small incisions.

During robot-assisted surgery, the doctor controls the robotic system for the entire procedure. Their hand movements are translated into small, very precise movements of tiny instruments inside of the body.
