The Hillcrest Surgical Services department performs surgeries in 16 sub-specialties including neurosurgery, orthopedics, colorectal, urology and gynecology. We offer state-of-the-art technology featuring O-Arm®, StealthStation®, Visualase®, and da Vinci robotics technology.

Neurosurgical Advancements

Hillcrest is proud to be a leader in neurosurgical procedures featuring O-Arm, StealthStation and Visualase technology that allows minimally-invasive procedures not possible with conventional methods.

The O-Arm and StealthStation work together to provide detailed, real-time information to the physician during surgery. The O-Arm is a surgical imaging system that generates continuous multi-dimensional images of the site and sends those images to the StealthStation navigation system enabling precise tracking of surgical instruments throughout a procedure.

Visualase is an MRI-guided laser ablation that precisely targets and destroys unwanted brain tissue with a laser applicator. Compared to open surgeries, patients who have Visualase surgery can experience a shorter surgery, little or no hair removal, a one-stitch suture, shorter hospital stay and reduced scarring.

Robotics Technology

Hillcrest utilizes the da Vinci System which is a robotic surgical platform designed to enable complex procedures of all types to be performed through 1 to 2 cm incisions. This system is used for general, urologic and gynecologic procedures. Learn more about Robotic Surgery at Hillcrest.
