SURGICAL SERVICES

Same Day Surgery Min
The Ambulatory Surgery Center in the Donna O’Donnell, RN, Medical Arts Building is devoted to outpatient care, offering same-day surgery in a variety of specialties. The surgery center was designed to care for your same-day surgery needs in one convenient location. With ongoing advances in medicine, many routine procedures can be performed with no overnight stay.
Short Stay Surgery Min

The Short Stay Unit, located on the first floor of CentraState Medical Center, is staffed by nurses and a trained team of medical professionals working in collaboration with your doctor. It offers comfortable, specialized care before and after certain procedures, such as endoscopies, biopsies, spinal taps, interventional radiology, and various surgical treatments. While in this unit, patients receive careful evaluation, monitoring, and assistance with recovery.

Robotic surgery offers an advanced, minimally invasive approach to surgery. It enables our specially trained surgeons to provide an alternative to traditional open surgery for procedures considered too complex or delicate to treat using standard minimally invasive technology.

Robotic-assisted surgery offers physicians the control, range of motion, and visibility of open surgery, but it also allows them to work through tiny incisions. This means that patients may benefit from reduced blood loss, less pain and scarring, decreased risk of infection, fewer complications, and a faster recovery time. Robotic surgery is available for many conditions and diseases, including:

  • Achalasia (swallowing disorder)
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroid tumors
  • Gall bladder disorders
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Hernia
  • Kidney cancer
  • Kidney disorders
  • Obesity
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Prostate cancer
  • Ulcerative colitis

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.
