Surgery

When you schedule your surgery, we ensure you’re prepared for your procedure, whether you’re with us one day or overnight.

Our Pre-Admissions and Registration Center (PARC) staff helps facilitate a smooth surgical experience, educating patients and families on what to expect, and arranging pre-surgical testing and counseling with an anesthetist.

An expanded surgery area makes the experience as comfortable as possible for you and your family. Guests are greeted at the St. Mary’s Admissions desk on the second floor, and when it’s time for surgery, the family is escorted to a private area to wait comfortably both before surgery and during recovery. These rooms are staffed with volunteers who give regular updates, and include a sitting area where family members can remain with the patient post-surgery.

Expert surgical teams are equipped with the latest technologies, including our da Vinci Surgical System®, a sophisticated robotic platform that enables complex, minimally invasive surgery. This robot helps surgeons avoid surrounding tissue to minimize and control bleeding, while its 3D vision shows more details for better patient outcomes.

In addition to our industry-leading weight loss surgeries, we offer T.E.M. (Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery), a highly specialized, minimally invasive surgery for colon cancer.
