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. Palo Alto Medical Foundation provides a full range of surgical services, including bariatric, cancer, cardiac, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, orthopedic and urologic.
We strive to create a personalized experience with exceptionally well-trained surgeons and the most advanced technology to ensure that you have the best possible outcome. We’re committed to investing in your health and in the future of surgery.
Our goal is to provide excellent care locally, close to your own home. If you require more specialized care, we will refer you to another PAMF surgeon who can meet your needs. All of our surgeons and referring doctors work closely together to provide state-of-the-art, coordinated care and keep you in the communication loop at all times.
When possible, we offer minimally invasive surgery using the latest laparoscopic techniques and robotic technology to reduce your recovery time and scarring. This allows surgeons to perform hysterectomy, gallbladder, bariatric and other surgeries with just one to five small incisions.
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.
