Cutting-Edge Technology Tools

As part of our mission to shorten hospital stays, reduce pain and speed recovery for our patients, we use the latest technological tools.

Robotic Surgery

Surgeons utilize robotic assistance to achieve greater range of vision, accuracy and motion — reducing the risk of complications and speeding recovery. This device is used for various colorectal, thoracic, gynecologic and general surgical procedures.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

An innovative option used to treat localized prostate cancer, this outpatient treatment allows patients to return home the same day with minimal side effects and excellent clinical outcomes.

Aquablation

A unique treatment that combines the power of water with robotic precision to treat benign prostate enlargement, this therapy provides long-term relief with very few side effects.
