KershawHealth offers patients the benefits of advanced and minimally invasive surgical techniques for both inpatient and outpatient procedures. Surgeons are able to use lasers to correct ear, nose, throat and eye problems. Arthroscopy to repair damage to joints for shoulders, knees and ankles is also performed at KershawHealth. Total joint replacement can be performed for hips, knees and ankles.
Laparoscopy is also available for a variety of surgeries, including ob/gyn and general surgery such as removal of the gallbladder, appendectomy and treatment of urological conditions. KershawHealth also provides lithotripsy for the removal of kidney stones using shock wave.
Vascular procedures available at KershawHealth include Carotid endarterectomies, aortic aneurysm repair and vascular grafts for the lower extremities to improve circulation.
Many of these newer procedures do not require large incisions, which can mean fewer complications, shorter recovery times, and less expense for patients.
