The Most Advanced Surgical Care, the Best Patient Experience

Whether you or a loved one needs surgery, you can trust surgeons within our health system to provide the best care for a wide range of procedures. We cover a broad array of surgical disciplines using the latest techniques such as minimally invasive options and robotic-assisted surgery.

From same-day outpatient surgery to the most complex procedures, our health system is ready to provide residents of Louisiana and Mississippi with the highest-quality surgical care close to home.

Our Pre-Operation Clinics

Everyone comes into surgery with a wide variety of acute and chronic medical conditions that can play a major role in how successful and safe that surgery is. How those conditions are managed before and after surgery can have large effects on the success of an operation. We make it easy for patients and their families to understand what to expect before, during and after surgery with our pre-operation clinics.

Our Advanced Care Through Robotic Surgery

Within our health system, surgical teams have access to the most advanced technologies, including robotic surgery, which uses precise, computerized technology controlled by the surgeon. It combines the skill of your surgeon with the best features and benefits of minimally invasive procedures. Patients undergoing robotic-assisted surgery experience shorter hospital stays, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss and transfusions, less scarring and a faster return to normal activities.

Our Lady of the Lake Robotic Surgery Institute, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Francis Medical Center/P&S Surgery & Heart Center and St. Dominic’s Mississippi Center for Robotic Surgery all make use of state-of-the-art robotics and talented, well-trained surgeons to provide the best care for patients.
