Advanced Surgical Program

You deserve exceptional care. That's why the doctors at Adventist Health Glendale's advanced surgical program are redefining the art of medicine. The advanced surgical program offers minimally invasive and no-scar surgery options for faster recovery and better outcomes.

The program includes:

  • Advanced robotics: The da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic platform that enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
  • SILS (single incision laparoscopic surgery): SILS is used for many common procedures, such as hysterectomy or hernia repair, leaving little to no scarring because the incision is concealed in the belly button.
  • CyberKnife: The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a noninvasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and noncancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the head, spine, lung, prostate, liver and pancreas.

At Adventist Health Glendale, these surgical techniques are the preferred surgical methods for the treatment of many conditions. Unlike open surgery, which requires a long incision, advanced robotic and no-scar surgery is performed through one or more very tiny incisions.

These smaller incisions allow patients to experience less postoperative pain. Smaller incisions also usually mean a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and often a better overall outcome.

Adventist Health Glendale provides advanced surgical options for many procedures, including but not limited to:

  • Adrenal gland surgery
  • Appendectomy
  • Bilateral tubal ligation
  • Bile duct surgery
