Advanced surgical equipment results in faster patient recovery
Operating rooms are the heart of Surgical Services. Together, our hospitals have 26 operating rooms for specialized procedures including cardiac, vascular, orthopedic, plastic, pediatric, trauma, urology, neurosurgery, and ophthalmology. More and more, surgeons use using state-of-the-art technology, such as minimally invasive surgical equipment that reduces pain and complications, and speeds up recovery.
A quiet revolution in care
Over the past decade, our hospitals have experienced a quiet revolution in care. Surgical teams have introduced a number of more sophisticated and less invasive procedures, which, in turn, have shortened recovery times, decreased hospital stays and improved patient outcomes. These ground-breaking techniques have allowed our surgeons to offer complex procedures and keep patients close to their loved ones. Today, 98% of all surgeries can be done here on Vancouver Island. These leading-edge procedures significantly improve patient outcomes. To ensure our surgeons can advance this revolution in care and continue to offer complex procedures not previously available here at home on Vancouver Island, our hospitals need to be equipped with the best surgical equipment.
