Outpatient, Specialty & General Surgery in Guttenberg
Wide range of surgical services and procedures
Surgery can be stressful enough without having to travel far from home for common procedures. Even relatively minor specialty procedures like a colonoscopy can interrupt your work and life routines. We offer compassionate surgical care and a team approach including surgeons, anesthesia providers, registered surgical nurses and operating room technicians — all close to the comforts of home. In addition to two spacious operating rooms, GMHC offers deluxe same-day surgery suites for outpatient procedures. Comfortable, state-of-the-art hospital rooms, skilled care for extended stays, and physical therapy are available right here to help you through recovery and rehabilitation.
For most general surgery we partner with our General Surgery Clinic in an environment dedicated to comfort, safety and respect. General surgical procedures include gall bladder removal, hernia repair, bowel procedures, hysterectomy, breast surgery, skin biopsies and endoscopy procedures including colonoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Patient-focused care is coordinated with all team members to bring about the best possible results and ensure appropriate follow-up care after your surgery.
Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery
Our surgeons perform a range of laparoscopic and robotic-arm assisted procedures. These techniques help reduce the amount of time spent in the hospital and promote quicker recovery. Laparoscopic procedures include appendectomy, cholecystectomy for gallstones and other minimally invasive abdominal procedures. The da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System is a tool that allows the surgeon to perform surgery with easier access, greater precision and control, increased range of motion and an enhanced view. It’s a technological breakthrough that allows minimally invasive treatment for what were once major surgeries.
