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 the treatment of cancer and Parkinson’s disease as well as a state-of-the-art daVinci Robotic Surgery System used in urological and gynecological procedures.
Among the specialists who practice in our hospital are nationally- and internationally-known surgeons in the areas of neurology, occuloplastics and bariatric 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 and instruments guided by sophisticated, miniature cameras. As a result, patients heal faster, can return more quickly to their normal activities, and experience much less scarring. 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 recovery, so you can return to the comfort of your home on the same day as surgery.
da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
In addition, we offer a number of advanced surgical capabilities for the treatment of cancer utilizing the state-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic Surgery System.
The da Vinci System enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries
through tiny surgical openings. The System cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The da Vinci System requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from your surgeon. The da Vinci Surgical System has been successfully used in thousands of prostate cancer procedures worldwide.
