Surgical specialties

North Suburban offers board-certified surgeons in a variety of specialties, including:

ERAS Surgery

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) is a treatment program using the modern medical science to increase recovery after surgery. It is our to get our patients back to their daily routine as soon as possible, and ERAs technology ensures the fastest recovery.

Interventional radiology

Interventional radiology refers to catheter-based, minimally invasive procedures used to diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and conditions. During an interventional radiology procedure, an interventional radiologist guides a thin wire through an artery to the part of the body requiring attention.

There is a small camera attached to the wire, which helps the interventional radiologist guide the wire carefully and obtain a clear view of arteries and structures within the body.

Robotic surgery

North Suburban is dedicated to providing the Thornton community with leading-edge, surgical technology, which is why we were the first in north Denver to offer the da Vinci®Si™ Surgical System.

The da Vinci®Si™ is a robotic surgery platform, and we often use it for gynecologic surgeries, such as the hysterectomy.

Robotic technology requires only a few, very small incisions, which has numerous benefits to the patient. These benefits include less scarring, a quicker recovery and a shorter hospital stay.

What to expect after surgery

Our new, spacious patient rooms are specifically designed for your recovery. We also have plenty of room for your family and friends to visit, if you choose to host. Our nurses are trained to check on you every hour—at least—to ensure your needs are being met. However, we are one, quick call button away if you need us more often.

Depending on your procedure, our physical therapists may meet with you to practice movement to speed up your recovery, and our occupational therapists may help you practice daily tasks.
