Surgical services

Inpatient surgery

The advanced operating suites and intensive care units at St. Anthony's Medical Center contain a wide array of real-time and digital imaging tools to assist surgeons during procedures as well as bedside computer workstations to help nursing staff rapidly monitor any changes in patient conditions.

In addition, the John K. Pruellage Heart & Vascular Center offers more than just technological advancements. It was built with the patient’s emotional healing process in mind. Quiet private rooms and a naturalistic design featuring gardens, earth-tone colors and soft surroundings help create a sense of calm.

Same day or outpatient surgery

Highly qualified general and specialty surgeons perform a broad scope of outpatient surgeries at St. Anthony's Medical Center. Each surgery is performed using the most technologically advanced techniques and equipment available. The support staff of certified operating room nurses, registered nurses, certified surgical technologists and anesthesiologists closely monitor all surgical patients before, during, and after procedures.

Advanced tools

For inpatient or outpatient surgery, the robotic da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. Through its state-of-the-art robotic platform, surgeons can perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with precision.
