Surgery

If your primary care physician recommends surgery, you’ll find some of the most innovative and newest surgical treatments at Lehigh Valley Health Network. Our surgeons are skilled in minimally invasive techniques that create smaller scars and a faster recovery. We also perform general surgery, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, neurosurgery and cancer surgery.

Below are some of the leading-edge surgeries we offer:

Gamma Knife® Perfexion

This technology doesn’t actually involve a knife. Instead it’s radiosurgery that treats both cancerous and non-cancerous brain tumors without an incision. Gamma Knife Perfexion™ can treat even hard-to-reach tumors.
