Surgical Oasis

Surgical Oasis Institute


At Surgical Oasis, we introduce a revolutionary approach to provide surgical care based on high quality patient care and outstanding patient experience. This innovative approach has allowed us to develop and promote a center of excellence in the community.

The idea is to combine the advantages of the latest medical and surgical technology with the outstanding patient experience by restoring the essence of humanity such as compassion, human connection, care and kindness back to the patient care.

Incorporating these qualities with advanced minimally invasive surgical approach has created a surgical oasis.

It is a multifaceted experience with physical, psychological, moral and social dimensions. Scientific knowledge, keen skills, sharp mind and steady hands are crucial to treat the illness but the art of medicine and humanity is equally important. We are responsible to heal the illness, not just the patient`s disease and in order to do so we must combine the advanced medical and surgical treatment with compassion, connection, care and kindness.

Our goal in “SURGICAL OASIS” is to restore the essence of humanity in our patient’s care and incorporate the latest surgical treatment and technology to deliver an outstanding patient experience with highest surgical quality.

Oasis 4Humanity

Oasis 4Humanity


In recent decades there have been significant changes in health care system and how medicine has been practiced. Health care is a giant, mysterious machine, with increasing policies, procedures, cost-containing regulations and maximizing efficiency efforts. The priorities in health care have changed and allowed much less time for interactions among patients and health care professionals. Therefore, their angelic relationship has been crumbled and a mistrust has been created. The medical practice in majority of cases is algorithm base medicine with a little or no flavor of humanity. This has resulted exhausted and unhappy health care professionals and dissatisfied patients. In order to alleviate this problem we must restore the humanity in our care. The four most important pillars of humanity that must be applied in our practice are compassion, connection, care and kindness. By merging the high quality patient care with the essence of humanity we could treat the patient illness, create an outstanding patient experience, capture the patient’s heart and soul and develop a long lasting loyalty and trust. However, creating a remarkable patient experience in health care is connected and interdependent on health professional experience which requires a universal movement of change in the culture of the healthcare towards humanity.

This blog is advocating for the restoring the essence of humanity into health care. The idea is to share ‘stories’ of compassion, human connection, care, and kindness with colleagues and our patients. The acknowledgment of these acts would encourage us to do more, to promote our bond for an incredible cause and improve our relationship with patients.

Sharing the stories of humanity towards the patient and towards other member of the health care team might be more crucial now, than ever before.
