SAVED: World-class chest surgery close to home
We’re fortunate to have a world-class thoracic surgery team here in Surrey. With your support, we’re raising more than $2 million to help our surgeons provide patients with the most innovative “key hole” procedures that can help many patients avoid major surgery.
Patients from across the Fraser Health region and beyond come to Surrey Memorial Hospital for specialized thoracic surgery procedures to treat cancer, trauma and many other health concerns involving the chest (thorax), abdomen and neck.
Our surgeons are at the forefront of innovation in developing new procedures to benefit patients, but they need access to the newest technology and equipment to do their best work.
We need your help to purchase five pieces of equipment: a superDimension Bronchoscopy system; Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) equipment; a PINPOINT Endoscopic Fluorescence system; a SPY Imaging System; and radio-frequency ablation (RFA) equipment. Surrey will be the only thoracic centre in BC to have access to the first three pieces of equipment.
