Specialized Surgery

PeaceHealth surgeons have extra training in many specialty areas, such as brain surgery, heart surgery and orthopedic surgery. Many surgeries can be performed as an outpatient (also called same day surgery) or inpatient, where you stay overnight in the hospital.

When you need surgery, you can trust that we use the latest technology and minimally invasive approaches – including robotic-assisted procedures. This often means smaller and fewer incisions, shorter hospital stays and faster healing.

If you need a second opinion, we can help you understand your options. You can feel confident that you are in expert hands throughout your surgery and recovery.
