Until recently, patients needing surgery had to choose between traditional “open” surgery with a large incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but cannot be used for all procedures. We now offer robot-assisted surgery as an innovative option for patients. This breakthrough technology can be used for many complex procedures. Our hospital has 12 physicians who use our robot-assisted technology for a variety of minimally invasive robotic surgical procedures.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation
We offer inpatient and outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation programs. Our expert physical, occupational and speech therapists create individualized treatment programs and use state-of-the-art equipment to help patients regain mobility and functionality after surgery.
We also help patients recover from certain medical conditions and surgeries through specialty rehab programs, such as our neurological care team's brain recovery rehab and our orthopedic team's bone and joint rehab.
