When you need surgery, you want access to advanced treatment options and experts who prioritize your comfort and safety.

HCA Florida University Hospital provides you with access to the most advanced, least invasive treatment options for your condition. Our surgeons perform a wide range of procedures, including minimally invasive surgical options.

Our surgical treatments and services

No matter your surgical needs, our team of surgeons are able to treat conditions in a wide range of specialties.

General surgery

General surgery is a surgical specialty dealing with conditions affecting the organs and structures of the abdomen and gastrointestinal system. When medications and lifestyle changes have proven ineffective, a general surgery procedure may be the best treatment option. We perform both traditional, open surgery and minimally invasive options for patients undergoing this type of procedure.

We commonly perform the following:

  • Hernia repairs
  • Appendectomy
  • Splenectomy
  • Colon resection
  • Gastric resection
  • Small bowel resection
  • Gallbladder removal
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease surgery

Gynecologic and urogynecologic surgery

If a gynecologic condition is diagnosed, we are equipped to provide advanced treatment, often using minimally invasive options, such as laparoscopy or robotic surgery. Additionally, many gynecologic conditions also affect the female urinary system. The area of medicine that treats these conditions is called urogynecology. We surgically treat both gynecologic and urogynecologic conditions, including:

  • Bladder disorders
  • Pelvic floor disorders, including vaginal and uterine vault prolapse
  • Cervical, uterine and ovarian cancers
  • Endometriosis
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding
  • Infertility
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids

Orthopedic surgery

As part of our orthopedic services, our orthopedic surgeons are available to provide surgical solutions for a range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. Our orthopedists are with you from the initial diagnosis through your recovery and rehabilitation process.

Weight loss surgery

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, offers surgical solutions to patients with morbid obesity (typically considered to be more than 100 pounds or more overweight). There are several types of weight loss surgery, but the focus is to reduce the overall intake of food while also reducing the body's absorption of calories.

We perform gastric balloon, gastric banding, gastric bypass and revisional bariatric surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is the overarching term for surgical procedures using technology and techniques that limit the number of incisions required. Large incisions typically require a longer recovery time, while smaller incisions heal quicker and offer less physical trauma to the patient. Laparoscopy and robotic surgery are the primary methods of minimally invasive surgery that we use.

Postoperative surgical care

As part of our dedication to patient comfort and safety, we offer updated, enhanced postoperative suites.

Our spacious, private rooms provide a healing environment combined with advanced technology and specialized nursing care and attention. Our suites include:

  • Updated patient bathrooms
  • Spacious area for guests
  • Peaceful, calm environment
  • Access to the dedicated nursing station for patients in postoperative care
  • Updated LED lighting
  • Wireless internet access
