CentraState’s state-of-the-art surgical facilities and highly skilled team of surgeons and nurses are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care. From minimally invasive procedures to complex surgeries, we offer a comprehensive range of surgical services tailored to meet your individual needs. At CentraState, your well-being is our priority, and we are committed to delivering excellence in every aspect of your surgical journey.

CentraState provides state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgery, including the “da Vinci® robotic surgery,” for conditions ranging from endovascular procedures to joint replacements. Compared to traditional surgery, minimally invasive surgery may result in faster healing and a shorter recovery time for patients. Our surgical services are delivered in state-of-the-art operating rooms by highly trained physicians and nurses. Same-day surgery procedures—those not requiring an overnight stay—are performed in CentraState’s Ambulatory Surgery Center. And when appropriate, patients receive pre- and post-operative care in our Short Stay Surgical Unit.

ROBOTIC SURGERY

VASCULAR AND ENDOVASCULAR PROCEDURES

CentraState’s vascular and endovascular program provides a full spectrum of care for patients with arterial disease, including medications, minimally invasive endovascular procedures, and open surgery. CentraState’s new state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Catheterization Lab and Interventional Suite provides full-service diagnostic capability to diagnose and treat vascular problems such as narrow or blocked blood vessels and repair aneurysms, quickly and accurately. Vascular surgeons collaborate closely with other specialists, including neurologists, podiatrists, radiologists, and cardiologists.
