Whether you need surgery to treat cancer, clear a blocked artery, fix a structural problem or remove a diseased gallbladder, Providence Medical Center provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient surgical services.
Our experienced surgeons performed more than 3,400 procedures last year. We are pioneering minimally invasive techniques that allow our patients to recover quicker with less pain and scarring. The latest lasers, laparoscopes and catheters (tubes) allow our doctors to operate through small ports or go in through veins and arteries to correct problems.
From our board-certified surgeons, anesthesiologists and specially trained operating-room nurses, we are all motivated by one goal: your return to good health.
