Surgical Services

We understand that having surgery and spending time in a hospital isn’t high on the lists of many people. That’s why we strive to offer outpatient procedures and minimally invasive surgeries — to get you back home as soon as possible. And if you do need to spend time in a hospital, isn’t it nice to know you and your family won’t have to travel far for quality care?

The general surgeons on the medical staff at Alta Vista have experience in many facets of surgery from tumor removal and hernia repair to gallbladder surgery and emergency surgery. They also perform colonoscopies and other endoscopies.
