SCH offers patients with vascular disease comprehensive care that is based upon the individual needs of the patient. Testing is necessary to definitively diagnose vascular disease. We offer a full range of non-invasive, painless tests to promote the early detection and management of vascular disease, and endovascular procedures such as stent placement and angioplasty.
Our thoracic surgery service is committed to providing exemplary care to patients with surgical needs and is known for applying minimally invasive methods whenever possible.

Hip Resurfacing and Partial Knee Replacement

Bariatric (weight-loss) surgery can improve your overall health and change your life! Recommended for adults with a body mass index (BMI) above 40 (or 35 for those experiencing obesity-related health complications), bariatric surgery can result in a considerable amount of weight loss over a short period of time. Not only will you look better, but you'll feel better as you will dramatically reduce your risk of obesity-related health issues, like diabetes, heart and lung problems, stroke, sleep apnea, joint disease and many more.
