Surgical care in Jacksonville

HCA Florida Memorial Hospital offers several surgery locations to meet your needs.

No matter what type of surgery you need, HCA Florida Memorial Hospital has you covered. We have highly trained surgeons who perform a range of surgeries — even some of the most complex surgical procedures — using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. Whether you are in need of an outpatient procedure or an inpatient stay, we are equipped to safely care for you in a comfortable and compassionate environment.

Surgical services we offer

We offer a wide range of surgical specialties.

Our surgical procedures

Types of surgery we perform include:

  • Bariatric surgery
  • Breast cancer surgery
  • Cardiothoracic and vascular surgery
  • General surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Lung cancer surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Urologic surgery

Endoscopy suite

We also offer an endoscopy suite to help diagnose and treat gastrointestinal conditions, such as heartburn and acid reflux. An endoscope is a long, flexible tube with a camera attached to the end that allows doctors to view the digestive tract and detect any issues. An endoscopy can also be used for a biopsy or during surgery.

Robotic surgery

We offer robotic surgery for a wide range of procedures at our hospital. Robotic surgery allows your surgeon to only make small incisions and use small instruments to perform an operation. This allows your surgeon to have better visualization and precision.

Robotic surgery is associated with many benefits for patients, including:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for blood transfusions
  • Less pain
  • Quicker recovery times
  • Shorter hospital stays
Robotic heart surgery

As an alternative to traditional open-heart surgery, our Heart Center offers minimally invasive and robotic heart surgery options. It involves no trauma to the breastbone, making it a better option for many patients.

Robotic gynecologic surgery

We use advanced technology to provide minimally invasive gynecologic procedures to meet your needs.

Hysterectomy

If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for a robotic hysterectomy. During this procedure, the uterus is removed using only small incisions to treat conditions such as endometriosis or uterine cancer.

Myomectomy

A myomectomy is an alternative to a hysterectomy used to remove uterine fibroids to preserve the uterus. It is ideal for women with this condition who may wish to become pregnant in the future.

Sacrocolpopexy

In this procedure, surgical mesh is used to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position. Sacrocolpopexy is a procedure that treats vaginal vault prolapse. It can also be performed following a hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse and provide long-term support for the vagina.
