This year, Healthgrades® ranked Community Hospital among America’s 100 Best Hospital for Orthopedic Surgery. The hospital houses Community Healthcare System’s Spine and Neurosurgery Institute, which provides deep brain stimulation and other advanced treatments for neurological conditions. Its surgical department also operates one of the largest cardiovascular surgery programs in Northwest Indiana. Community Hospital’s reputation for high quality care has attracted some of the most talented heart surgeons in the country.
Surgeons on staff are also among the few in the area that are specially trained and experienced in minimally-invasive surgeries to treat parathyroid disease (called minimally-invasive, radio-guided parathyroidectomy, or MIRP). The MIRP procedure offers less risk of damage to the numerous small nerves and other important structures in the neck and a quicker recovery time than traditional operations.
