When other treatment options aren’t effective or appropriate for you, surgical procedures can be used to treat many medical conditions and injuries. General surgeons have in-depth training in surgical procedures for all areas of the body, including the digestive, endocrine, muscular and nervous systems.
Our surgeons are leading providers of:
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) – We have some of the most respected surgical experts in the country who are not only pioneering new MIS techniques but teaching them to other surgeons worldwide. Benefits of MIS procedures include smaller incisions, less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay and shorter recovery time, less scarring and a low risk of infection.
Laparoscopic procedures – With the help of innovative surgical devices and remotely controlled instrumentation, surgeons can make a few small incisions – and sometimes just one tiny incision – instead of the large ones required in the past to access the surgical environment.
Robotic-assisted surgery – Using state-of-the-art surgical tools such as the da Vinci® robotic system, our surgeons can operate with greater visibility and precision, resulting in improved patient outcomes, and reducing patients length of stay.
Endoscopic general surgery – In this form of minimally invasive surgery, a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera at the end (the endoscope) is introduced to the surgical field through a small incision or natural opening such as the mouth or nose. The surgeon passes minute surgical instruments through the endoscope to perform the operation while visualizing the surgical field via a computer monitor.
