State-of-the-art operating suites in our hospitals, an outstanding team of surgeons and highly-experienced nursing care are among the key features of surgical services at Berkshire Health Systems.
Together, these factors are driving patient outcomes that compare with the best hospitals in the country and make BHS the region's leader in comprehensive surgical services.
Our surgeons focus on minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery which results in less post-operative pain, quicker recovery times and shorter hospital stays. This includes the use of the da Vinci Surgical System for some surgical procedures, a robotic-assisted platform that allows for tiny incisions, less blood loss and a faster recovery. Robotic surgery is used for Urologic, Gynecologic, Thoracic and some General Surgeries, including single port gallbladder removal surgery.
A relentless dedication to the highest standards in quality has seen outstanding results in reducing the risk for surgical infections and other complications. Skilled physician anesthesiologists provide innovative techniques for post-operative pain management, while also overseeing the medical care of patients during surgery. Our surgical program is comprehensive, with inpatient and outpatient facilities staffed and equipped to provide surgical services that range from a minimally-invasive hernia repair to the most complex brain and spinal surgery. Our team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical technicians, registered nurses and other caregivers are committed to delivering world-class surgical care in an atmosphere dedicated to patients and their most effective recoveries.
