We offer a wide range of surgical services. 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 as well as a state-of-the-art daVinci Robotic Surgery System used in urological, bariatric and gynecological procedures.
Among the specialists who practice in our hospital are surgeons in the areas of orthopedics, gynecology and bariatric surgery.
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 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.
