Surgical Services

We continuously upgrade our surgical offerings to provide you with safe, comfortable, leading-edge care. Our state-of-the-art Surgery Center is designed to integrate current and future technologies, putting the latest advancements at your surgeon’s fingertips.

Surgeries we offer

The Surgery Center houses six spacious surgical suites and four special procedures rooms, allowing us to provide a wide range of specialties and surgeries.

Enhancing your surgeon’s control

Each surgical suite is equipped with large, high-definition video monitors and LED lighting. Your surgeon can view radiology images and minimally-invasive surgical procedures with amazing clarity during surgery.

We have recently added the da Vinci Xi® 4th generation technology – the very latest in robotic surgery - to our surgical suite.

Robotic-assisted surgery is minimally invasive and allows our specially trained surgeons to perform a wide range of delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions.

Utilizing an advanced robotics computer, this system allows the surgeon to remain 100 percent in control at all times. Each movement of the surgeon's hand is translated into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient's body.

We also use innovative surgical tools like the PlasmaBlade® to reduce blood loss and the LenSx® Laser for incredibly precise cataract surgery.

Each room also features highly responsive temperature controls, allowing our staff to tailor the heating and cooling to your specific surgical needs.

Designed for your privacy, safety and comfort

Visitors to the Surgery Center are given a paging device at check-in as well as access to private lockers. Your loved ones will be paged when it’s time to talk to your surgeon, allowing them to leave the surgical waiting area during your procedure.
