Covington, Louisiana – AVALA Hospital, a premier surgery center on the Northshore, has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Minimally Invasive Surgery by the Women’s Choice Award®, one of America’s trusted referral sources for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that AVALA is in the top 1% of 4,729 U.S. hospitals reviewed.
AVALA takes pride in the specialty surgical services we provide to our patients that help them get back to their lives much quicker than traditional surgery. We are excited to offer a wide range of minimally invasive surgeries including spine procedures where the incision is usually less than one inch in size!
Our Globus ExcelsuisGPS spine robot shows the procedure in real-time on a screen for the spine surgeon to monitor and make more informed clinical decisions during a patient’s surgery. The robot’s imaging technology may also reduce the amount of radiation utilized during the procedure. Using this technology, we can provide patients with a minimally invasive procedure that has the possibility to yield better surgical outcomes.
Minimally invasive surgery has become the standard of care for many surgical procedures as a safer and more effective option to open surgery. Minimally invasive surgeries minimize risks to the patient by significantly reducing the size of the incisions, which has clear benefits, including shorter hospital stays if any, fewer complications, faster recovery, and reduced pain and incision scarring.
AVALA Hospital has achieved America’s Best Hospitals for Minimally Invasive Surgery distinction by meeting the following criteria:
- Hospitals must be listed by the American Hospital Directory (AHD.com) as providing robotic surgery. AVALA owns 3 Stryker Mako robots capable of performing total hip, total knee, and partial knee replacements. Spine procedures use the Globus ExcelsiusGPS robot.
- The hospitals that achieve #1, must also have a patient recommendation rating of 72 percent or more (i.e. higher than the national average) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) survey (HCAHPS).
AVALA Hospital is one of 358 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for minimally invasive surgery across the U.S.
