Robotic Joint Replacement Surgery

AVALA is one of 12 hospitals in the world with three Stryker Mako Robots and Technology.  Our physicians are part of an elite training group specializing in this technology providing patients with robotic-assisted total hip, total knee, and partial knee replacements.

Hand Surgery

At AVALA Hospital, our hand physicians have extensive training in all aspects of the hand, including nerves, tendons, bones, and blood vessels. This elite group of hand physicians also specialize in severe cuts or trauma caused from accidents that occur at home or work environments. Our goal is to eliminate the pain and discomfort caused by injury or disease.

Most hand surgeries are completed as outpatient procedures at AVALA, meaning patients return home the same day as their procedure. Some procedures can also be completed at your physician’s clinic.
