Surgery is a branch of medicine that involves treating diseases or injuries by adjusting or removing organs, tissues or bones. Surgery includes both necessary procedures, like cardiac surgery, or elective procedures, such as joint replacement.

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA)

We were the first in Colorado to use a specialized drug-coated balloon PTA catheter. This technology is an aid to the angioplasty procedure, preventing tissue from scarring and slowing the additional buildup of plaque in the artery. As a result, you experience the benefits of this procedure for a longer period of time.

Reconstructive procedures

Reconstructive procedures aim to correct abnormalities on the face or body or help restore a part of the body that was damaged due to injury or illness.

These can include:

  • Congenital abnormalities, such as cleft palates and lips or ear deformities
  • Rebuilding a woman’s breasts after breast cancer surgery (breast reconstruction)

  • Trauma caused by disease treatments

Cosmetic surgery for men

More men are turning to cosmetic surgery to feel better and look younger. Body improvements, such as pectoral implants, liposuction and nose reshaping, are becoming more common for men, as well as eyelid surgery, face-lifts and the male tummy tuck.

We understand that men have unique needs when it comes to cosmetic surgery. With expert plastic surgeons and high-quality services, we provide our male patients with specialized care tailored to your goals.

Surgical oncology

Many cancers require surgery as an element of treatment. Whether it’s a lumpectomy for breast cancer or minimally invasive surgery for colon cancer, our team will work closely with your entire care team to determine the appropriate cancer treatment.

Minimally invasive surgery

Our Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery offers expert surgeons who perform laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries. Using advanced technology, our team works with you to determine an effective approach that will deliver a successful outcome, minimal scarring and a short recovery.

Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced minimally invasive surgical technique that allows surgeons to operate through multiple tiny incisions, rather than one large incision. The surgeon is able to visualize the inside of the body using a tiny camera that is placed in the body through a thin, flexible tube called a laparoscope.

Images are projected from the camera onto a screen in the operating room, allowing your surgeon to complete the procedure without the need for opening the body using a traditional large incision.

Robotic surgery

Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeons to operate with extreme precision, using robotic assistance to precisely visualize your anatomy and reduce trauma to the body. Using robotic technology, surgeons have a great range of motion, clear vision during surgery and extreme dexterity.

We offer a wide-range of robot-assisted surgical procedures, and have one of the largest robotic gynecologic surgical programs in Colorado.

Robotic procedures we perform include:

  • Cholecystectomy
  • Endometriosis surgery
  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Gynecological surgery
  • Hernia surgery
  • Hysterectomy (benign and cancerous)
  • Kidney surgery
  • Knee replacement
  • Myomectomy
  • Partial nephrectomy
  • Prostatectomy
  • Pyeloplasty
  • Thymectomy
  • Transoral robotic surgery (TORS)

Benefits of minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery, whether robotic or laparoscopic, has many benefits compared to traditional surgery. Some of these patient benefits include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery and return to regular activity
  • Less scarring
