Types of surgery we offer

Our surgeons specialize in many different types of procedures, including:

Robot-assisted surgery

The robotic surgery system at our hospital continues to lead the way in minimally invasive surgical technology. Our surgeons use robotics for spinal, urologic, gynecologic and general surgery procedures. During robot-assisted surgery, surgeons perform complex procedures through tiny incisions. Benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Faster recovery times
  • Less pain
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced blood loss and risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays

Cardiovascular surgery

As part of our commitment to providing advanced cardiovascular care, we offer specialized heart and vascular surgery. Procedures available include:

  • Aortic valve replacement
  • Mitral valve repair
  • Coronary artery bypass (CABG)
  • Thoracic surgery for cancerous and benign tumors, including mediastinal tumors

We also offer transcatheter procedures to repair and replace the aortic valve and mitral valve. This is a minimally invasive option for people who cannot undergo heart surgery.


Our board-certified neurosurgeons use minimally invasive techniques to treat back and neck issues when more conservative treatment methods are not effective. This type of surgery may be useful for a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Bone spurs
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Tumor removal
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Slipped disc

Joint replacement surgery

Joint replacement surgery can help restore range of motion and eliminate pain associated with your hip, knee and shoulder. When joint pain and immobility cannot be relieved through nonsurgical options, your doctor may recommend a joint replacement procedure.

Our orthopedic surgeons use the latest advancements in surgical technology and techniques to perform:

  • Hip replacements
  • Knee replacements
  • Shoulder replacements

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Depending on your surgery, you may benefit from rehabilitation services for your recovery plan. Our physical therapy and rehabilitation team is here to help you get back to your normal activities as fast as possible. We offer inpatient and outpatient therapy services along with customized rehabilitation plans to meet your needs.
