When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, gynecologic surgery may be necessary. The goal of gynecologic surgery is to benign cancer and correct gynecologic conditions. Some of the procedures we perform include hysterectomy, myomectomy and sacrocolpopexy.
Heart and vascular surgery
Our cardiac specialists are dedicated to improving each patient's cardiovascular health. We offer a range of heart and vascular surgeries, from minimally invasive treatments to complex procedures, to treat vascular disease and heart conditions.
We offer comprehensive orthopedic care services to diagnose and treat bone and joint conditions. In addition to a dedicated joint replacement program, we also provide a spinal cord injury program. Through dedicated rehabilitation services, we help each patient regain mobility and function after an orthopedic surgery.
Prostate cancer affects the prostate gland and may spread to surrounding structures. Nearly one in six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
At West Florida Hospital, we provide prostate cancer surgeries to remove the cancer, preserve urinary function and—when applicable—preserve erectile function.
West Florida Hospital uses robotic surgery, which provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. This surgical system puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform.
Benefits of robotic surgery
Through 1-2 centimeter incisions, surgeons using the robotic surgery system can operate with greater precision and control. Because the surgery is less invasive, patients experience the following benefits:
- Faster recovery and return to normal activities
- Less pain and scarring
- Lower risk of infection and complications
- Shorter hospital stay
