Hospital Buzz
Crescent City Surgical Centre

Sometimes you know you need surgery—perhaps a knee replacement or sinus surgery for chronic sinusitis—while other times a surprise diagnosis may warrant the need for an operation. Knowing your options and the questions to ask in advance could save you time, money, and stress. While hospitals are known for comprehensive care, they each have their own specialties, approaches, technologies, and providers that could make one a better fit for you over another. Throughout the year, many providers offer their latest news and offerings so that you can be better acquainted with your local options for care. Meanwhile, resources for healthcare workers and patients alike may interest you or someone you know. Take in the latest “Hospital Buzz” and learn something new about the advancements, physicians, awards, and other tidbits from the many hospitals across Greater New Orleans’ vast medical landscape.
