Elite Surgery Center Services
Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and the total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery. The anesthesiologist is the perioperative physician who provides medical care to patients throughout their surgical experience. This includes evaluating the patient before surgery, consulting with the surgeon, providing pain control and monitoring life functions during surgery, supervising care after surgery, and medically discharging the patient from the recovery unit. Today's safe anesthetic medications and sophisticated monitoring devices enable our anesthesiologists to provide the best medical care possible.
General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. This surgery requires familiarity and knowledge of a broad spectrum of diseases and recognizing that those diseases may require surgical treatment.
Cosmetic surgery is a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body. Because treated areas function properly but lack aesthetic appeal, cosmetic surgery is elective.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine specializing in the anatomy, function and diseases of the eye. Ophthalmologists specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of eye disorders, vision measurements for glasses, eye muscle exercises, and the prevention of blindness. Cataract is the loss of transparency of the lens in the eye; it may follow injury, infection, or aging. Cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures in the United States with more than 22 million Americans age 40 and older affected by cataracts.

Urology is the medical and surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tracts of men, women and children and on the reproductive tracts of men and boys. Urologists evaluate and manage patients with blockage of the urinary system and also with urinary leakage problems. Urologists also diagnose and treat patients with stones in the urinary tract and patients facing male infertility. Urologists evaluate and manage all the different cancers of the urologic organs. In addition, they manage penile and testicular abnormalities in adults and children.
Tens of millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain - pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating. A pain management physician focuses on your ability to function despite living with chronic pain. Their goal is to help you manage the pain so that the quality of your life improves.
Podiatry is a branch of medicine to the study of diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle. A podiatrist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of foot disorders, diseases and injuries. Some of the conditions that a podiatrist would treat include bone and joint disorders such as arthritis, skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails. Foot injuries and infections gained through sport and other activities are also diagnosed and treated by a podiatrist.
Gynecological surgery refers to surgery on the female reproductive system. Gynecological surgery is usually performed by gynecologists. It includes procedures for benign conditions, cancer, infertility, and incontinence. Gynecological surgery may occasionally be performed for elective or cosmetic purposes. Gynecologists trained in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery care for women who have a range of noncancerous gynecologic conditions including heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia), irregular menstrual periods (metrorrhagia), pelvic pain, recurrent pregnancy loss and ovarian cysts. Surgeons perform these procedures through one or more short incisions. Minimally invasive surgery may result in less postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and, in some cases, a better overall outcome.
