St. Luke's Health System continues to be a critical capacity and will not allow scheduling of non urgent surgical cases. This "pause" started on August 16 to allow for more hospital beds & resources due to the surge in Coronavirus cases and the lack of staff available, but it escalated to include outpatient and semi-urgent surgeries as well. Unfortunately, the situation is not improving. Less than half of Idaho's eligible population is vaccinated, despite FDA approval of the vaccine and overwhelming evidence that the vaccine is safe & the best way to protect against serious Covid-19 infection.
Currently, Treasure Valley Hospital does not take care of Covid-19 patients, and so some patients will still be eligible to have their surgeries performed there, depending on the surgery, their insurance, and their other medical problems.
What can you do? First of all, get the Coronavirus vaccine! It is now approved for ages 12 and up. The vaccine is FREE. It is safe, has been utilized in 3.6 billion people across the world to prevent Covid-19, and it is effective. Visit Idaho's Official Coronavirus Vaccine page for details and FAQs. You can get the FREE vaccine at retail pharmacies like Albertson's, Fred Meyers, Walmart, Walgreens, local public health districts, hospital walk-in vaccine clinics, or local pharmacies. Huntington Laparoscopy does not have any vaccines to distribute, but we're happy to help you find your closest options.
We are open and continuing to provide surgical care for our patients throughout this pandemic.
When visiting our clinic:
- Please wear a mask at all times that covers your nose and your mouth.
- You may bring ONE support person with you. No children please.
- Routine postoperative or preoperative visits may be conducted via telehealth
If you are sick or have a possible Covid 19 exposure, please call us and postpone your appointment!
All waiting areas and exam rooms are being thoroughly disinfected between patients
If you are having surgery, you will be required to have a Covid 19 test about 48-72 hours prior to arrival at the hospital.
Please call our office to reschedule your appointment or surgery if you are feeling sick or are exposed to someone you suspect may have Covid-19.
GET BETTER, FASTER
Surgery is a necessarily part of modern medicine, and new advances have made patients' recovery safer and easier. At Huntington Laparoscopy, we have the latest knowledge and technology to address your surgical needs.
Drs. Huntington -- a father-daughter team of General Surgeons in Boise, Idaho -- specialize in advanced laparoscopic surgery. Major operations can be performed safely and successfully through a minimally invasive approach, which means patients have less pain, fewer complications, and get better faster.
When you arrive at Huntington Laparoscopy, you will be treated with courtesy and respect. At our downtown office, Drs. Huntington take the time to get to know you and your medical history. If you or a loved one needs an operation, we take the time to make sure you understand the procedure and expected recovery. We work with our out of town patients to minimize needless trips too.
Whether it's fixing a hernia or taking out a tumor, you or your loved one will have exceptional care. With decades of experience, scientific publications, and hard work, Huntington Laparoscopy brings competent and compassionate surgical care to Southern Idaho. We operate at St. Luke's Medical Center in downtown Boise and Treasure Valley Hospital in Boise.
Care doesn't end when a patient leaves the hospital. Drs. Huntington and their staff are there if and when patients and their families have questions. Patient-centered care is the norm at Huntington Laparoscopy. We take pride in taking care of our patients as if they were part of our family.
