Nationally Recognized for Patient Safety

AdventHealth is recognized as one of America’s highest-rated hospitals for patient safety by The Leapfrog Group.

An appendectomy is an emergency procedure to surgically remove an infected appendix (appendicitis) when symptoms present. The goal is to remove the appendix before it ruptures and becomes life-threatening. Our elite surgical staff have improved and refined less invasive laparoscopic appendectomy techniques to reduce the number of incisions and minimize pain, scarring and recovery time for you. If you experience symptoms of appendicitis, seek emergency medical care immediately.

Doctor and Patient

An abdominal hernia occurs when there is a hole, tear or weak spot in the muscle wall, allowing intestine, other organ or in some cases fat tissue to bulge through. This can lead to pain and more serious complications if left untreated. Using leading-edge technology and the skills that come from years of experience, our hernia surgeons specialize in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic assisted procedures to heal inguinal, incisional, ventral, and umbilical hernias. Your safety and comfort are our top priority so you can get back to living the life you love.

Doctor and Patient

Gallbladder surgery may be recommended for a variety of conditions that affect the gallbladder, including cancer and gallstones. While a serious surgery, our experts have dedicated their practice to minimizing the healing time and pain for this procedure. They do this by utilizing laparoscopic, minimally invasive techniques as much as possible to reduce healing time, scaring and pain.
