Surgical services at CMC include a variety of specialities:
State-of-the-Art Surgical Suites

The Surgery Department at CMC includes 10 state-of-the-art surgical suites: eight for general surgery and two for cardiac surgery. The addition of a hybrid operating room in 2012 combines the traditional operating room with the best imaging and cardiac catheterization equipment. Having multiple technologies in the same operating room fosters innovative surgical approaches that can improve patient outcomes.


Our Hybrid Operating Room can be used either for minimally invasive or open surgery. Through real-time imaging, a patient’s anatomy can be evaluated as necessary during the surgical procedure. The “hybrid” concept comes from combining features of an operating room and an interventional suite. The Hybrid-OR can also be used by an interdisciplinary team, leading to increased flexibility and efficiency of workflow.

At CMC, we are dedicated to delivering the highest standards of care to meet all your surgical needs.


Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques

Many procedures can be performed through minimally invasive techniques, if appropriate for the patient. CMC was one of the first hospitals in the country to use minimally invasive, robot-assisted surgery techniques with the da Vinci® Intuitive Surgical Robotics System and now has two of these robots.

Outpatient Surgical Care

For outpatients who need or wish to use an ambulatory surgery center for insurance reasons, CMC has a partnership with the Bedford Ambulatory Surgery Center (BASC). Complex surgery will be performed at CMC while outpatients may have procedures at either BASC or CMC.

Designed to meet patient and family needs

If you are having surgery, you will be escorted to a pre-operative ambulatory area where your family may join you here prior to surgery. Recovery from surgery takes place in a post-operative care area. Our family waiting room has a quiet area and another area with a television, both with wireless internet service and a charging station for your mobile devices. A private consultation room allows physicians to talk to families privately following surgery. CMC’s surgical suites are in close proximity to the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit and heliport for emergency situations.
