Our surgical specialties
We offer highly trained experts in many different medical fields. These surgeons and their teams have deep knowledge in and experience with:
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery
For some, weight loss isn't just about fitting back into last year's jeans — it's about making changes that give them more years with their loved ones or reverse diabetes, for example. For these people, and many others who need support starting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, we provide bariatric surgery programs.
These programs offer a wide range of surgeries as well as complete, lifelong follow-up care. We will help you stay strong and well, day after day, year after year.

Our cosmetic and reconstructive services include many options for these and any other needs you have.
Heart and vascular surgery
Whether you need a surgical procedure for an arrhythmia or varicose veins, we are able to offer you complete cardiovascular surgical care.

Minimally invasive surgery
As surgical technologies change and improve, we are able to offer you better, more effective procedures. We stay at the forefront of this field to ensure we are experts with these technologies.
Part of this commitment involves our expansive selection of minimally-invasive options, including laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures. These types of procedures typically allow you to have a quicker recovery and shorter hospital stay, since they reduce the traumatic impact on your body.
Some of the minimally-invasive surgeries we offer include:
- Abdominal wall hernia repair

- Esophagectomy (for esophageal cancer)
- Gastrectomy (for cancer and benign diseases)
- Heller myotomy (for achalasia)

Our skilled surgical teams will always offer you the least invasive options first, but we encourage you to ask your doctor about minimally-invasive techniques.
