Surgery

Saint Francis Health System offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient surgery services. From same-day ophthalmologic procedures, gall bladder extraction and hernia repair to critical inpatient procedures, trauma surgery and transplantation, the physicians and surgical staff of Saint Francis are among the finest around.

Saint Francis Health System's surgeons and other surgical team members treat a wide range of patients - with common to more complicated cases - and clock in more than 27,000 surgeries every year. Our surgical care units consist of 37 operating room suites at Saint Francis Hospital and four at Saint Francis Hospital South, and are staffed by our specialists who are highly-trained in all areas of surgery.

To provide the most accurate evaluation, our surgeons use state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques to diagnose and treat patients. And, whenever possible, surgery is performed using minimally invasive techniques, which results in faster and easier recovery times for our patients.
