Surgery

Saint Agnes Medical Center provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient surgical services, and puts a high priority on incorporating new technologies to benefit our patients. Committed to providing our patients with the most innovative treatment options to meet their individual needs, we have invested in state-of-the-art technology to support a wide range of minimally imvasive procedures, including advanced robotic surgery.

Our Surgical Services team understands that any type of surgery can cause anxiety, so we work closely with our patients and their families to provide comfort and reassurance. This includes educational information about what to expect before, during, and after surgery.
