Surgical Services

​​​​With a commitment to quality, surgical teams at SSM Health perform thousands of surgical procedures each year. Our experienced team of surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses work with the latest technology to maximize patient safety and comfort. We offer a full range of procedures – many of which use minimally invasive techniques with the smallest of incisions to minimize pain and speed recovery.

Dedicated to continually advancing their skills, our nurses and technicians have earned multiple certifications in operating room, critical care, trauma, ambulatory surgery, medical surgery and surgical technology. Just as important, they earn high praise from patients for their compassionate care. That's what it's all about.

Surgery: Your Role

Knowing what to expect before, during, and after surgery ​​can help ease your fears. Knowledge can also help you take an active role in your recovery.

Being an active patient means asking questions and not agreeing to anything until you understand it and believe that it's for the best. Taking an active role also includes finding out about the cost of your treatment.
