We offer a wide range of surgical procedures. Many can be performed on a convenient outpatient basis. For major operations, our large surgery department includes special rooms for heart surgeries and orthopedic procedures. In addition, we offer a number of advanced surgical capabilities for joint replacement, urological procedures, general and vascular surgery.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
Thanks to breakthroughs in medical technology, many surgical procedures that once involved major operations can now be performed through tiny incisions with instruments guided by sophisticated, miniature cameras. As a result, there is less surgical trauma so patients heal faster, experience much less scarring, and they can return more quickly to their normal activities.
Some of our surgery suites are specifically designed for these procedures. The high-tech equipment includes computerized touch-screen controls for easy adjustments to lighting levels and positioning of cameras and plasma-screen monitors.
New technologies also enable us to perform many operations on an outpatient basis. These procedures minimize surgical trauma and the time needed for recover, so you can return to the comfort of your home on the same day as surgery.
