Staff and Facilities
All Richmond Health Network Surgeries are performed at Richmond University Medical Center which has a state-of-the-art cystoscopy suite for performing lithotripsy cases. We perform over 7,000 endoscopies every year and are now currently completing a new Ambulatory Services Project with six new endoscopy suites and new Pre-Admission Testing offices. The hospital serves Staten Island as a Level I Trauma Center, responding to over 1,000 traumas a year with excellent outcomes. The hospital also boasts 11 operating suites with the latest technology, including surgical towers, multidetector CT scans, and digital mammography screens.
We also provide an excellent pain management service, offering leading nonsurgical procedures as well as conventional surgical alternatives.
In order to offer the best surgical care possible, the Richmond Health Network team performs a thorough evaluation of every patient. This can include allergy information, current medications, and family medical history. In some cases, blood tests and x-rays may also be performed. Patients should also be prepared to provide their insurance information to our staff.
