Announcing Baptist Health’s New Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center
To fight the devastating impact of stroke on patients and families in Florida, Georgia and beyond, Baptist Health and Lyerly Neurosurgery have created the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center for advanced treatment of strokes, brain aneurysms and other cerebrovascular conditions. Patients no longer have to leave the area for state-of-the-art, life-saving treatments.
Baptist offers the area’s most comprehensive minimally invasive robotic surgery program, with more than 75 trained and credentialed surgeons. Together, they’ve performed close to 4,000 robot-assisted surgeries for a growing number of conditions – including urinary, reproductive, colon, hernia, appendix and gallbladder. Renee recently had single-site surgery to remove her gallbladder. Inside her bellybutton, her scar is practically invisible.
Single-site robotic surgery exceeds Renee’s expectations
As a kid, I remember the large diagonal scar my mother had from gallbladder surgery. I was so relieved to hear that my scar would be practically invisible.
