With state-of-the-art laparoscopic instrumentation, minimally invasive surgery is performed with maximum results. Enhanced ancillary services, including pathology, histology, cytology, microbiology, and pre-surgical diagnostics, support positive outcomes. SBELIH was the first hospital on Long Island to acquire and operate with the Olympus 4K Ultra High Definition Surgical Camera System, leading-edge surgical equipment that allows superior visualization.

A skilled nursing staff closely monitors you every step of the way -- from pre-surgical testing to recovery. SBELIH nurses take great pride in delivering an extra measure of “caring.”
