Surgery Center in Metairie, LA
Surgery at East Jefferson General Hospital consists of over 150 team members dedicated to the care of each patient having a surgical procedure. Our surgeons have garnered national recognition for developing innovative procedures and using technology to pave the way for advancements in all areas of surgery.
Groundbreaking procedures are employed at EJGH across surgical disciplines, including orthopedics, urology, prostate care, and gynecology with nationally recognized success in minimally invasive spine surgery. In addition, East Jefferson General Hospital has become one of the first to routinely use the da Vinci Robotics System for hysterectomies, allowing for minimal scarring and speedy recovery.
But perhaps more important than our skilled physicians, expert use of robotics, targeted radiology and leading edge surgical techniques, is the personal touch each patient experiences at East Jefferson. An entire surgical team is dedicated to every patient because we view them as more than a disease that needs to be treated or a problem that has to be solved. Our surgery department is stocked with blanket warmers, so patients can feel the homey warmth of a blanket just pulled from the dryer, before they go into surgery and when they are in recovery. It is the balance of surgical talent and human compassion that makes East Jefferson General Hospital's inpatient and outpatient surgery departments renowned for excellence.
Surgical Specialties at East Jefferson include:
Certified Nurses in the Operating Room (CNOR)
Many of our nurses have advanced certification and many more are in the process of acquiring advanced certification. CNOR credentialing represents a level of professional achievement and a demonstrated knowledge of clinical competence and practice standards. Just as important, achieving a CNOR credential demonstrates proficiency in support of quality patient care and sets a standard of commitment to the profession of operating room nursing.
