If you’re going to have surgery, Mercy Gilbert is the place to be.
We take pride in our investment in the latest technologies, such as the da Vinci robotic surgical system, to make surgery more accurate and convenient, and less invasive, for both patients and surgeons. This means less time in the hospital and faster recoveries at home so you can get back to life quicker than ever before.
From the most simple surgery to the very complex, our caring nurses and staff will be with you every step of the way, whether you will be with us for inpatient surgery, or if you will go home for outpatient recovery.
Mercy Gilbert is proud of our HealthGrades five-star designation for appendectomies from 2011 to 2013. HealthGrades is the leading independent health care ratings company.
da Vinci Surgery
Technological advancements take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand at Mercy Gilbert. We now offer minimally invasive robotic surgery options with the da Vinci® Si HD™ Surgical System.
If your surgeon schedules inpatient surgery, this means you will be recovering in the hospital overnight or for several nights following your procedure. Prior to your inpatient surgery, our surgery admission nurse will call you to obtain your medical history and provide additional information to help you prepare.
Outpatient surgery, or same day surgery, does not require an overnight hospital stay. Whether an operation can be done as outpatient surgery depends on the potential for complications before and after surgery. Your doctor or surgeon will also take into account your age, medical history and overall health.
A registered nurse from our pre-operative team will call you before surgery. Take this time to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have.
