Minimally Invasive Surgery

An increasing number of surgeries today are performed as minimally invasive procedures, in which our surgeons use the most advanced technologies available for laparoscopic, endoscopic and robotic surgery. For more information on our robotic and minimally invasive surgery options, click here.


Same-Day Surgery

For routine, same-day surgeries, many of our physicians can perform your procedure at the Cape Outpatient Surgery Center, which is owned and operated by Sarasota Memorial. The center is accredited by the Joint Commission, and all of our registered nurses are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). The anesthesiology department provides the same high-quality care, experience, equipment and patient monitoring found in Sarasota Memorial Hospital’s operating suites.
