Comprehensive Pre- and Post-Operative Care
Our Surgery Center staff understands that the actual surgical procedure is just one component of a successful care plan. Our expertise extends to the diagnosis, management and treatment of a variety of conditions. Screenings ensure the surgery and approach will help us deliver the best possible outcome for your individual needs, and post-operative care supports you as you heal.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
A chief concern for any surgical patient is how quickly life can return to normal. Our team is dedicated to choosing the tools and surgical approach that promises the most favorable outcome with the shortest recovery period.
An alternative to open surgery or laparoscopy, our surgeons use the da Vinci Surgical System, a sophisticated robotic system that expands our surgical capabilities.
This minimally invasive technology offers significantly less pain and scarring, a shorter recovery time and quicker return to normal activities.
Most of our heart patients do not have to suffer from multiple, large leg incisions for vein harvesting.
More than 99 percent of bypass patients are candidates for endoscopic vein harvesting, an approach that requires just a one-inch incision near the knee — resulting in less pain and risk of infection and a shorter hospital stay.
