Surgical Services

Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital (SBELIH) provides comprehensive and compassionate care through a team of board-certified specialists in various medical fields, supported by skilled nursing staff, offering a range of surgical procedures including minimally invasive techniques, with a focus on patient education and post-operative support, predominantly performed in their Advanced Ambulatory Care Center.

Due to less invasive procedures and quicker healing times, about 85% of our surgeries are performed in the Advanced Ambulatory Care Center. Ambulatory surgery patients are educated prior to their scheduled surgery to ensure that they fully understand the procedure, ensuring both patient and family have all their questions answered to their satisfaction.

Our goal is to provide streamlined patient care in a beautifully designed contemporary environment. The team of healthcare professionals includes dedicated nursing staff, certified operating room nurses, certified registered nurse anesthetists, certified operating room technicians, and board-certified specialists in anesthesiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and urology.

For patients requiring a more extended stay, the Medical-Surgical and Intensive Care Units provide award-winning professional nursing staff who closely monitor patients every step of the way, from admission to discharge. Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital nurses and physicians take great pride in delivering an extra measure of “care” to our patients.

Some of the most common surgical procedures performed include minimally invasive procedures, appendectomy, gallbladder procedures, hernia, colon resection, other gastrointestinal procedures, venous ulcer care, and wound care including management of complex wounds.
