Today, in keeping with the latest trend toward maximizing patients' comfort and convenience and shortening hospital stays, Memorial Hospital performs an increasingly broad range of outpatient, same day and inpatient surgeries. Combined with advanced medical/surgical/anesthetic technologies, as always, the personal involvement of our staff members ensures you receive the attention, care and consideration that would naturally be given to family, neighbors and friends.


TYPES OF SURGERY

From pre-admission testing and diagnostic procedures, areas of surgery routinely performed include:

  • GENERAL SURGERY, such as appendectomy, hernia repair, gall bladder, bowel surgery, mastectomy and lumpectomy
  • .
  • DIAGNOSTIC SURGERY, such as bone marrow aspirations, liver, breast and other tissue biopsies.
  • EAR, NOSE AND THROAT SURGERY, such as tonsillectomies, thyroidectomy, septoplasty and myringotomy.
  • ENDOSCOPIC PROCEDURES for examination of the esophagus and stomach (gastroscopy), bowel (colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy).
  • LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY, which is perhaps the most progressive of recent surgical developments, involves relatively small incisions and the use of a scope and video screen viewing for performing surgical procedures. A broad range of surgeries, which in the past involved a large incision and longer hospital stays can now be performed laparoscopically, such as gall bladder removal, tubal ligations and ovarian cystectomies.
  • OB-GYN SURGERIES such as D&C, hysteroscopy, ablations, hysterectomy and cesarean section.
  • ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY such as carpal tunnel release, repair of fractures, and knee arthroscopy, arthroscopic surgery and spinal surgeries.
  • THORACIC SURGERY including lobectomies (removal of a portion of the lung), thoracotomies (chest surgeries) and thorascopies (chest examinations)
  • .
  • Vascular Surgery such as vein ligation, AV shunts & carotid endarterectomy
