Today's modern medicine relies on advances, and the latest in medical technology is available at Morton Plant Hospital. We combine a commitment to health care excellence with the latest advances in medical technology to offer a wide range of inpatient and outpatient surgical services to the communities we serve.

Recognized for our superior neurosurgical and heart programs, our surgeons were among the first in the U.S. to revolutionize the conventional method of abdominal aneurysm repair through the use of a stent. This minimally-invasive procedure leads to less pain and a quicker recovery since only tiny key-hole incisions are required, as opposed to traditional open-heart surgery. Additional procedures include laparoscopy, a technique that dramatically reduces the recovery time for many operations. 

Types of Surgery Performed:

Pre-surgical teams conduct laboratory work, EKGs and pre-anesthesia evaluations for all surgery patients. Benefits include:

  • Both inpatient and outpatient surgeries are performed
  • Advanced pain management services
  • Short Stay Unit, 23-hour concept available for those patients who need an extended recovery period but do not require an inpatient stay
