Robotic surgery is the latest innovation in general surgery. This technology allows us to perform more complicated operations with a minimally invasive approach. As a result, patients often have less pain and faster postoperative recovery. Our surgeons perform hernia repair, gallbladder removal, stomach, and colon surgeries with a robotic approach. Many robotic operations can be performed on an outpatient basis. When outpatient surgery is not an option, robotic surgery helps shorten the duration of hospitalization after surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is another minimally invasive surgery technique. This approach also allows us to perform more complicated operations through small incisions. Gallbladder and appendix removal are two common operations that our surgeons perform through a laparoscopic approach.
Critical care medicine is an increasingly important medical specialty that requires additional fellowship training and board certification. Intensivist physicians are certified to manage the care of acutely ill patients in the intensive care unit. Dr. Nina Kolbe is board certified in Critical Care Medicine.
Breast health is a major concern for women today. Our surgeons provide compassionate care and exceptional expertise using state-of-the-art training and skills to treat the full spectrum of breast disease and cancer. They provide everything from sentinel lymph node biopsy and lumpectomy to total or partial mastectomy procedures.
