Our surgeons excel in areas of advanced specialization like deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's, essential tremor, or dystonia; multiple treatment options for trigeminal neuralgia; minimally invasive motion-preserving spine surgery; and minimally invasive interventional neurology for patients with brain aneurysms, stroke, brain artervenous malformations and dural fistula, and narrowing blood vessels of the head and neck. We also offer a full continuum of neurodiagnostic testing to help diagnose conditions of the brain and nervous system.

Pediatric Services: Our knowledgeable staff specializes in caring for children, from infant to 18 years old, with medical, surgical, neurological, respiratory and orthopedic issues.
Orthopedics: If you struggle with damaged joints, tendons or ligaments caused by arthritis, aging, sports injuries or overuse our orthopedic program at Littleton Adventist Hospital can help get you back in the game. Our expert fellowship trained orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive procedures for minimum downtime.

Robotic surgery: The daVinci® system is a robotic system which enables our surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures like prostatectomies and hysterectomies with unmatched precision. Benefits of this minimally-invasive surgery can include smaller incisions, less pain and trauma for patients, and a faster recovery.
Sleep Disorder Center: Our sleep lab staff can diagnose and treat conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, night tremors, sleep walking and more. Having a sleep study in a hospital setting offers the highest degree of safety and security, especially for those who have more complex medical problems, such as cardiac disease.
Stroke Center: When it comes to treating stroke, time is brain - meaning the sooner treatment is received after the onset of symptoms, the better the chance of experiencing a good outcome. Our stroke center has been accredited as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission since 2005 and continues to receive recognition from the American Stroke Association for excellence in care delivery, including recognition for how quickly we treat stroke patients. Littleton Adventist Hospital also serves as a telestroke hub for several rural hospitals throughout Colorado. We are part of the Centura Health Stroke Network of Care.
