Neurosurgeon Mark Li, MD, and our team of brain tumor specialists know how to find and treat brain tumors while also preserving each patient’s quality of life. This approach includes treatments such as awake craniotomies that do not disturb speech or movement, along with technologies such as Gamma Knife® Perfexion™. Our team has performed more than 12,000 neurosurgeries over the past decade.
A burn trauma is among the most significant stresses the human body can survive. Daniel Lozano, MD, and his team are the only ones in the region offering pain-free burn treatment, even for third-degree burns over 80-90 percent of the body. We’ve treated more than 6,000 burn patients over the past decade.
For some people with a severely diseased aortic valve, open heart surgery may be too risky. Which is why TAVR – a transformative, minimally invasive heart procedure – is so critical. Raymond Singer, MD, and his team have done more TAVR procedures than anyone else in the region. LVHN also is the first hospital in the region to provide the lifesaving left ventricular assist device (LVAD). Over the past decade we’ve performed nearly 16,000 cardiac surgeries.
Joint replacement surgery
Joint pain can significantly reduce your comfort, mobility and quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our fellowship-trained joint replacement surgical team can get you out of bed and back on your feet within hours after your surgery, and back home within days. We’ve performed more than 20,000 joint replacement surgeries over the past decade.
Kidney and pancreas transplant
Michael Moritz, MD, and his team are so experienced, they can successfully use kidneys other transplant programs can’t. This cuts the wait for a new kidney – which often is more than five years – almost in half. We’ve performed 1,000 transplants, and our transplant rates exceed the national norm.
Pancreatic and liver cancer surgery
Surgery is the only treatment known to cure pancreatic cancer, which is why having access to a surgeon highly experienced in advanced abdominal cancers is so critical. Surgical oncologist Jeffrey Brodsky, MD, has performed more than 100 pancreatic and liver surgeries this year.
When a baby is born with significant urinary or reproductive issues, it can be very difficult. Michele Clement, MD, is one of only 325 fellowship-trained pediatric urologists in the country, and she and her team work to make sure children grow up to enjoy normal urinary and reproductive functions. We’ve performed more than 26,000 pediatric surgeries over the past decade.

Obesity increases your risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. If you’ve struggled to lose weight, bariatric surgery can help.

And our program is accredited a designated center of excellence by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Quality Improvement Program.
