Complete surgical services

In addition to offering surgical services in a wide range of specialties, the surgeons at our hospital also use minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopy, endoscopy and robot-assisted surgery. We employ a wide range of surgeons who offer surgical expertise in the following areas:

Heart and vascular surgery

The cardiac services at our hospital are extensive and expand into complete cardiovascular surgical care. The cardiac surgeons care for patients with heart disease, valve disorders, heart arrhythmias and people in need of surgery following a stroke or heart attack.

In addition to traditional open-heart surgery, the surgeons at our hospital offer several minimally invasive options for cardiac surgery. Minimally invasive surgery offers patients a faster recovery time and less postoperative pain. The surgical team performs minimally invasive coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

Hernia repair surgery

The surgeons at our hospital are experts in treating all types of hernias, including epigastric, umbilical, incisional, spigelian, inguinal and femoral hernias. Hernia repair surgery involves placing expanded tissues back in their correct position and strengthening the weakened area of the abdominal wall where the hernia is present.

Hernia repairs at our hospital are performed through traditional surgery, laparoscopy or robotic surgery.

Orthopedic surgery

Oftentimes, the best treatment option for an injury or condition of a bone or joint is orthopedic surgery. The orthopedic surgeons at our hospital perform all types of joint replacement procedures, including hip, knee and shoulder replacements. We also surgically treat complex hand repairs and traumatic hand injuries.

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery is one type of minimally invasive surgery that offers patients many benefits, such as a shorter recovery time, less blood loss and minimized postoperative pain. Robotic surgery is performed using several small incisions, instead of one large incision. Advanced surgical instruments are manipulated through the small incisions, resulting in increased surgical dexterity and visualization.

Robotic surgery is used in a number of specialty services at Blake Medical Center, including hernia repair, spine surgery and bariatric surgery.
