When medication, lifestyle changes and other non-surgical treatments cannot
relieve symptoms, surgery is the accepted treatment for a broad range
Surgery can be a scary proposition for a patient, no matter how routine
the procedure. If surgery is recommended, it's important to learn
as much as you can about your surgical options and find the physician
and hospital that are right for you.
Three types of surgery are offered at Longmont United Hospital: traditional
open, laparoscopic and robotic. Traditional open surgery with a large
incision has its drawbacks - pain, trauma, long recovery time and risk
of infection. While laparoscopic and robotic surgeries are effective for
many routine procedures, they have inherent limitations when more intricate
and complex surgery is required.
Our surgeons are trained extensively in all types of surgery. The goal
of our surgical team is to provide you with as much information as possible
about your surgery, care and recovery. We provide care tailored to the
specific needs of each patient to provide an individualized treatment
plan. Throughout the process our surgeons will collaborate with your primary
care physician as well as other specialists to ensure you receive the
best possible care throughout the process.
