Here is What's Happening in Our Operating Room
Erie Shores HealthCare is pleased to serve our community with an innovative and ever evolving Surgical Program. We are quite busy, performing an average of 4,200 surgical cases and 2,700 endoscopy procedures each year.
We have added to our existing, outstanding Surgical Services over the last year, as a result of the recruitment of some visiting surgical staff, as well as educating our Advance Practice nurse to utilize the full scope of their practice in the role of RNFA – Registered Nurse First Assistant. These specially trained nurses will assist your surgeons during your surgical procedure.
The general surgery program offers leading, cutting edge traditional and laparoscopic procedures, including Appendix surgeries, Gall Bladder surgeries, Diagnostic and Screening Endoscopic procedures, a variety of Hernia repairs, Carpal Tunnel Release, Melanoma, Breast and Colon Cancer surgeries. Our OB/GYN’s offer Tubal Ligations, cesarean sections and laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomies. Our primary surgeon supports our 24-hour Emergency Room services.
Along with General Surgery services, our visiting Surgical Services include:
- Orthopedic Surgeons (2)
- Pediatric Dental Surgeon
- Plastic surgeon
- Urology Surgeon
Most of the Surgical Services offer outpatient clinics on the first floor Outpatient Clinic Area, thus offering more local services to our community and reducing the need for long distance travel for appointments.
As we continue to expand our Surgical Services for Leamington and the surrounding communities, we strive for patient satisfaction and reduced surgical wait times.
