When surgery is required, our caring environment, advanced technology and experienced surgical staff make all the difference in patient care. Trinity’s Surgical Suite includes eight operating rooms, one cystoscopy room, and progressive technology for ENT, urology, orthopedics, general, and gynecology surgery. Our cystoscopy suite has been upgraded to include a digital radiography cysto procedure table to assist in urology procedures. As the first day surgery unit in Augusta, our current day surgery department provides patients comfort-oriented, private rooms with lounge chairs, and a pediatric holding room.
For minimally invasive procedures, or those requiring only a small incision, surgeons at Trinity Hospital of Augusta use the latest in high definition video and camera systems. This advanced technology is used primarily in the areas of:
- Laparoscopic Procedures - examination of the abdominal cavity, investigation of pelvic pain, or gynecologic conditions such as infertility and general surgery.
- Bariatric Procedures - Lap banding as well as laparoscopic gastric bypass.
- Arthroscopic (Orthopedic) Surgical Procedures - knee surgery, examination of joint and tendon conditions.
- ENT Surgical Procedures - nasal sinus surgery - ENT surgeons also use image guidance technology for sinus surgery.
- Lithotripsy Procedures
We were proud to have been the first hospital in the area to perform the laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic burch, and laparoscopic colon resection. In addition, we were the first hospital in the area to offer Videostroboscopy - voice controlled laparoscopic videography used to assess vocal problems in a matter of minutes.
Our Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) consists of 16 beds for specialized care with an extensively educated and oriented staff and advanced equipment. In an effort to better serve our patients, all of our PACU and Day Surgery nurses are both ACLS and PALS certified.
