- 8 State-of-the-Art
Operating Suites. 100% fresh air is cycled through each operating room 25 times
an hour through HEPA filters, providing the cleanest possible environment for
- A Hybrid Operating
Room, which combines high-resolution, 3-D imaging capabilities with fully
equipped operating room technology in a single space. The integration allows
surgeons to move a patient's surgery from minimally invasive to fully open
without interruption - making procedures safer and quicker.
- Operating Room
Video Conferencing Capabilities, which allow the surgical team to communicate
in real time with specialists, such as pathologists in the laboratory who are
analyzing tissue samples just excised.
Operating Rooms. The Center's operating rooms are designed to allow
instrumentation to hang at eye-level rather than be placed on the floor. This
placement improves the surgical team's functionality, visibility, and mobility

treatments for patients with kidney stone disease and for cystoscopies to
diagnose urological conditions.
Setting the Standard for Minimally
Our surgeons are
skilled in innovative, minimally invasive surgical techniques and use of new
technologies, including the da Vinci Surgical System®, a revolutionary robotic
technology. It provides patients with options for minimally invasive surgical
procedures resulting in significantly less pain, less scarring, shorter
recovery time, faster return to normal daily activities, and, in many cases,
better clinical outcomes.
Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS), surgeons use a tiny camera and surgical
instruments inserted through small incisions to view the inside of the chest
and remove nodules to test for cancer. This minimally invasive procedure allows
for a faster recovery and less pain for the patient.
