A Worldwide Reputation for Excellence
We’ve built our global reputation for surgical excellence on a history of innovation and firsts. A WellStar surgeon performed the world’s first laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) at WellStar Kennestone Hospital. WellStar is one of the first health networks to adopt robotics for precision urologic, gynecologic and cardiac surgeries.
We continue this leadership role by advancing surgical care with clinical trials and sharing our expertise by training over 15,000 surgeons in laparoscopic surgery.
WellStar’s surgical services are delivered in multiple convenient locations across Northwest Georgia and include specialties in:
- Ear, Nose & Throat
Our experienced surgeons set the standard for patient-centric care, performing over 31,000 procedures annually in technologically advanced surgical suites. Additions like the da Vinci® Surgical System help us meet our goal of offering patients shorter hospital stays and faster healing.
Our ongoing investment in new technologies includes:
- Four state-of-the-art surgical room suites at WellStar Cobb Hospital equipped with the latest high-definition video and camera systems. One of the suites has a total digital integration system to send live images for teleconferencing for educational purposes or consultation.
- WellStar Kennestone Hospital features state-of-the art operating rooms for adult open-heart surgeries. The Open-Heart Surgery Program partners with Emory Healthcare.
- WellStar Kennestone Hospital's integrated video system allows teleconferencing of laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery procedures.
Surgery at WellStar is the first essential step in your journey to wellness. Our team approach provides an expansive care network dedicated to delivering the highest quality comfort, convenience, compassionate care and recovery before, during and after surgery.
