State-of-the-Art Surgical Facility
Graham recently completed a full renovation and the addition of 17,000 square feet to our surgery suites. This renovation allowed us to bring in all new State-of-the-Art equipment and two highly sophisticated surgical robots. Graham made this commitment to the community so patients can stay right here in Canton to receive their high quality surgical care.
The Surgical Services department located on the second floor of Graham Hospital includes 15 pre-operative stations, five Operating Rooms, and six Post Anesthesia Care Unit beds, where both inpatient and outpatient care is provided. Graham Hospital also offers a dedicated Pain Management Suite with two procedure rooms and five pre and post-operative beds.
Our skilled Surgery Services Team works closely with patients; their primary care doctors and their families to offer an individualized care plan to ensure the best outcome.
Having surgery is stressful enough without the added pressure of travel. Our goal is to provide high quality surgical care right here in Canton!
Our robot-assisted surgical program helps to reduce scarring and get you recovering faster.
This minimally invasive surgery is nothing short of amazing! Our trained surgeons use Robotic Surgery’s pinpoint control and accuracy to offer many patients smaller incisions, therefore reducing scarring and promoting a faster recovery. Our goal is to get you back to your day-to-day activities faster.
The DaVinci Robot offers our general surgeons enhanced abdominal surgery and provides our Gynecologist the opportunity to preform hysterectomies. Our orthopedic surgeons use our Rosa Robot to assist with knee replacements.
Advantages to using the robotic assisted surgery:
- Less pain and blood loss for the patient
- Smaller incisions allow for less noticeable scars
- Faster recovery for the patient
- Fewer complications
Talk with your surgeon to see if robotic assisted surgery is right for you. Discuss the benefits and the risks to see how they compare to conventional surgery.

How We are Serving You:
Having COVID aggravated my COPD which led me to Graham Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation. When I started in February, I was on a 50 foot oxygen cord. Since starting my workout, I can now do most of my exercises without oxygen. I would recommend this program to anyone. This program get me back to chasing my grandkids around again.Bob Laird
