Surgery

When medical treatments fail or emergencies occur, NuHealth’’s board-certified surgical staff at Nassau University Medical Center is ready to intervene. Our attending surgeons practice in all of the major surgical disciplines, and are highly experienced at emergency and trauma surgery, as well as both routine and complex non-emergent surgery. And, if you or a loved one need a highly specialized surgical procedure, our clinical relationship with North Shore-LIJ Health System ensures a smooth transfer and the seamless transmission of all of your medical records.

Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques, using small “keyhole” incisions, and specialized scopes and surgical instruments, to reduce the risks and recovery time associated with open surgery. And, NuHealth’’s surgeons will work closely with your medical doctor or specialist and, most important, with you and your family. We’’ll take time to fully explain all treatment options before we decide on your personalized treatment plan.

Above all, the members of the Department of Surgery at Nassau University Medical Center understand that surgery is a frightening experience for patients and loved ones alike. Our goal is to provide outstanding surgical treatment while ensuring the best possible patient experience.
