Cambridge Health Alliance's experienced Surgery team has
performed thousands of procedures at some of Boston's finest
teaching hospitals. Today, we have recruited highly-regarded
surgeons and are able to provide state-of-the-art care in our
operating rooms. The department has grown significantly adding
skilled surgeons who bring specialized care to our communities. Our
most recent initiatives includes a minimally invasive surgery
program, hepatobiliary and pancreatic program, and
multidisciplinary breast center. All of our Surgeons handle routine
cases as well as more complex procedures. Whenever possible, we use
minimally invasive techniques to reduce the discomfort and recovery
time of surgery. Many procedures can now be done on an outpatient
basis with patients going home the same day. These procedures
including Endoscopy are performed at Cambridge and Everett hospital
and outpatient Endoscopy is performed at the Somerville Campus.
