St. Elizabeth Hospital offers surgeries and procedures in a number of different specialties including general surgery, orthopedics, urology, plastics, and bariatrics.
Bariatrics (Weight Loss)
Arthroscopic Surgery: procedure in which a joint (for example, the knee) is viewed using a small camera while other surgical instruments are inserted into the joint through small incisions and used to repair the joint or body part.
Cystoscopy: a procedure which allows a surgeon to view the inside of the urethra and bladder by using a thin, lighted instrument called a cystoscope. Surgical instruments can also be inserted through the cystoscope to take tissue samples, to remove foreign objects, or to place stents to allow the free flow of urine from the bladder.
Laparoscopy: surgery performed using a laparoscope in which a lighted instrument with a small camera attached is inserted into a small incision to view the part of the body which is being treated. Other small incisions are made to insert surgical instruments which are then used to repair or remove internal organs. Nearly all organs in the body are accessible through the laparoscope and many surgeries including weight loss surgery, bladder and gynecological surgery, appendectomy, hernia repair, prostate surgery, surgeries of the kidney and the lung, just to name a few.
Endoscopy: procedures or surgeries used to diagnosis and treat using an instrument called an endoscope inserted through natural openings in the body. Endoscopy is commonly used for diagnosis and treatment of the upper and lower colon, rectum, stomach, esophagus and other organs.
