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. In the Sutter Health network, surgical teams have earned recognition for excellence in bariatric, cardiac, cardiovascular, gastroenterology, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, joint replacement, oncology, orthopedic and trauma surgeries.
We’re also leaders in surgical innovation. In 2015, kidney transplant surgeons performed the first six-way kidney transplant swap in California. A neurosurgeon in the Sutter Health network helped develop the technique for a new minimally invasive surgery for neck pain; and an ear, nose and throat specialist in the network helped fine-tune a less-invasive procedure to treat surfer’s ear. Our nurse navigators help many people through treatment and recovery after surgery for key issues, such as cancer, joint replacement and weight loss surgery.
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, we’ve invested in robotic surgery technology that lets surgeons remove just the kidney tumor in some people, rather than the entire kidney. 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 as quickly as possible.
