Surgery Unmatched Surgery Center in Metairie, LA Featuring Robotic Surgery

Surgery at East Jefferson General Hospital consists of over 150 team members dedicated to the care of each patient having a surgical procedure.

Our surgeons have garnered national recognition for developing innovative procedures and using technology to pave the way for advancements in all areas of surgery.

Groundbreaking procedures are employed at EJGH across surgical disciplines, including orthopedics, urology, prostate care, and gynecology with nationally recognized success in minimally invasive spine surgery. In addition, East Jefferson General Hospital has become one of the first to routinely use the da Vinci Robotics System for hysterectomies, allowing for minimal scarring and speedy recovery.


Perhaps more important than our skilled physicians, expert use of robotics, targeted radiology and leading edge surgical techniques, is the personal touch each patient experiences at East Jefferson. An entire surgical team is dedicated to every patient because we view them as more than a disease that needs to be treated or a problem that has to be solved. Our surgery department is stocked with blanket warmers, so patients can feel the homey warmth of a blanket just pulled from the dryer, before they go into surgery and when they are in recovery. It is the balance of surgical talent and human compassion that makes East Jefferson General Hospital’s inpatient and outpatient surgery departments renowned for excellence.

Outpatient Surgical Procedures Same-Day Services gets you on the road to recovery faster.

Same-Day Services at East Jefferson General Hospital provides the highest quality of care for those patients whose surgical needs do not require an overnight hospital stay. Patients at EJGH’s Same-Day Services often have non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures performed and are able to enjoy a quick recovery from the comfort of their own homes.

During their stay with us, each patient receives unmatched nursing care that includes high quality care and a reputation for compassion and skill. Patients also enjoy recovering in their own, private room where loved ones are allowed to visit during the recovery period.

If a patient’s surgery or hospital recovery period extends longer than expected, the patient will be transferred to a nursing unit for continued care overnight.
