Our surgical team is able to meet patients’ needs in both elective and emergency surgeries in all areas. Surgical services offers a variety of highly skilled surgical subspecialists, including:
Utilizing advanced laparoscopic surgery, surgeons operate through small incisions in the abdomen using slender instruments and a laparoscope that is connected to a tiny video camera allowing them to perform the surgery with use of a monitor. The procedure is much less invasive than traditional surgery, resulting in less pain and scarring, a shorter hospital stay and speedier recovery period.
Norwood Hospital affiliated surgeons have performed pioneering surgeries in the treatment of chronic heartburn, appendicitis, gallbladder disease, colon disease, hernia repair, endoscopic thyroidectomy, uterine and ovarian disease, laparoscopic gastric banding, as well as urological disorders.
