Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Opens Surgery Center for Elderly Patients

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore has opened a surgery center that targets the elderly population, according to a Baltimore Sun report.

The Sinai Center for Geriatric Surgery is led by Mark R. Katlic, MD, chief of surgery at Sinai Hospital.

"The conditions that often require surgery — cancer, atherosclerosis, degenerative joint disease, cataracts, prostate disease and gallstones — increase in incidence with increasing age," Dr. Katlic said in a statement. "Older patients will benefit from surgery to improve the length and quality of their lives."

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore is part of the LifeBridge Health System.
