Robotic surgery programs 

Fountain Valley’s robotically assisted surgical programs can benefit you in a number of ways, including less pain and a shorter recovery time. We use both da Vinci® Surgery[link to: Our Services > Surgical Services > DaVinci Surgery] and Renaissance™ Mazor surgical systems. These minimally invasive surgery systems can help you experience: 

  • Faster recovery
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Less scarring
  • Lower risk of infection 

Total joint & spine program 

Our Total Joint and Spine program is the result of our dedication to making sure you have a high-quality experience and recovery. Our program is designed to eliminate any anxiety you may have about your surgery. We have classes that provide information about your hospital stay, what to expect, and explain your recovery and rehabilitation after surgery. If you are not able to attend one of our scheduled classes, contact your Nurse Navigator and we will make arrangements for you. Your total care includes pre- and post-operation support you need to get back to your daily life. 

Weight loss surgery 

Find out what you have to gain and how we can help you when you make the choice to get back to a healthy weight. The weight loss surgery team at Fountain Valley’s Surgical Weight Loss Center is an integrated staff of physicians, nurses, patient coordinators, counselors, dietitians and more all focused on helping you reach your weight loss goals. The center is accredited by The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. Our surgical team can discuss using da Vinci Surgery to minimize scarring and post-operative pain. 

The program evaluates you as a person, not as a number on a scale, and takes a comprehensive approach to improve your success rate. The team discusses with you some of the obesity-related complications you may have, provides you with counseling and support while customizing a plan to help you change your lifestyle. 

Before your surgery, you'll meet with a Bariatric Navigator, who will help make sure you are comfortable and supported while you stay at Fountain Valley.
Minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgery has reduced post-operative pain and has shortened the recovery for many of our patients.
