If you're facing surgery, you want to work with a team of caring surgeons and staff who understand your concerns and will make you as comfortable as possible throughout your procedure and recovery. At Alta Bates Summit, surgical teams have earned recognition for excellence in bariatric, cardiac, cardiovascular, gastroenterology, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, joint replacement, oncology, orthopedic and hernia surgeries.
We strive to give you and your doctor the most advanced technology possible to ensure that you have the best possible outcome. We’re committed to investing in your health and in the future of surgery.
For example, in 2003 we became one of the Bay Area's first hospitals to invest in robotic surgery technology. The robotic surgery platform lets surgeons perform more surgeries that are minimally invasive. This means less pain, faster recovery and fewer complications for you.
After your surgery, our nursing staff, physical therapists and other rehabilitation specialists provide comprehensive support services to help you get back to life (PDF) as quickly as possible.
