Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Surgery is a major medical procedure that can cause some stress and even anxiety. At Coral Gables Hospital, our team of medical experts possesses the knowledge and tools to help put your fears at ease. 


While our preference is always to find non-surgical solutions for your health problems, surgery may be required for a wide range of conditions and can include anything from emergency open-heart surgery to simple tonsillectomy. But no matter what your condition, you can count on our surgeons to provide the most up-to-date care using the latest surgical technologies to ensure the process is as safe, easy and painless as possible.


There are as many types of surgeries as there are medical conditions, but they generally break down into two categories: emergency and elective surgeries. Emergency surgery usually happens if you come to the emergency room with a serious condition, like a heart attack or stroke, that requires immediate life-saving surgery. Elective surgery is one that you plan and discuss with your doctor, and many of these can be performed using less invasive techniques.
