About Surgery at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center

You may have seen some of our Penn Presbyterian Medical Center surgeons featured in national publications, such as Consumer Reports, or on television programs, such as Women Docs on the LIFETIME channel. In 2007, a number of our surgeons were also named by Philadelphia Magazine as “Top Docs” in the region.

But those who know our surgeons best are the patients who come to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center for state-of-the-art surgical care provided by an exceptional team of prominent medical professionals.

Whether they need a groundbreaking minimally invasive laparoscopy or a more traditional surgery, patients turn to the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center team for their expertise in state-of-the-art surgical techniques. Our innovative surgical team works with industry leaders to bring cutting-edge technical advances and equipment right to our operating rooms. For example, our minimally invasive operating room represents a peek into the future of medicine with its state-of-the-art robotics technology.

In addition to outstanding technological advances, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center offers personalized touches, including private rooms for all post-operative patients and ongoing care from a team of highly-trained, experienced nurses and other support staff.

As a regional referral center, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's surgical team treats many patients from surrounding area hospitals who require advanced care. Patients also travel to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center from around the country - and in some cases, from around the world - to benefit from the superb skills of our internationally-recognized surgical team.

A proud member of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's Department of Surgery is situated at the forefront of 21st century surgical discoveries. We look forward to serving our patients' surgical needs and to providing the most advanced innovations and advances available in medicine today.
