Our top priority is your safety and well-being. If you require general surgery, you can rest assured that our surgeons will provide customized, convenient care close to home. We provide surgical care for a range of common and complex conditions, including:
Our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic techniques whenever possible and combine their skills and expertise with the most advanced technology to deliver the best outcomes.
During laparoscopic surgery, your surgeon will make several small incisions around the affected area and insert a camera called a laparoscope into one of the incisions. The camera will allow your surgeon to see inside your body and maneuver tiny surgical tools that will be inserted through the other small incisions.
Robotic surgery also uses several small incisions and camera to project images onto a computer screen. However, the robotic surgery camera provides a high-definition, magnified, 3D view instead of a 2D image. Robotic surgical systems also feature tiny “wristed” instruments that offer a greater range of motion and increased precision when compared to laparoscopic instruments.
Recovery times for laparoscopic and robotic surgery vary depending on the severity of your condition and the affected area of your body. However, studies have shown that patients who have laparoscopic and robotic surgery recover faster, have a lower risk of complications and experience less discomfort, blood loss and scarring than patients who undergo traditional open surgery.
Our world-class general surgery team will provide you with compassionate care from pre-op through recovery. Our board-certified surgeons, anesthesiologists and specially trained nurses are passionate about making sure you have the best care in the safest environment.
