Being told by your doctor that you need surgery is not fun. Fear of pain and long recovery times can dissuade patients from following doctor’s orders. Now, more and more surgeons are using minimal invasive surgery to operate, which causes less damage to the body than open surgery. Educators and leaders at the University Health Partners of Hawaii and the John A. Burns School of Medicine are teaching students about these operating techniques and using them to lessen the negative repercussions of surgery.
The Surgery Department consists of roughly 50 academic faculty and over 250 appointed private surgical physicians. As educators and attending physicians, surgeons treat patients here in Hawaii while staying abreast of all the latest technological advancements and maintaining dedicated facilities and resources to support clinical research in a variety of surgical fields. The Surgical faculty group is one of the leaders in Minimally Invasive Surgery in Hawaii.
We now have an academic affiliation with the Queen’s Health Systems and their new physician group – the Queen’s University Medical Group (QUMG).
Our Surgeons are a part of this transition.
