Saint Luke’s Surgical Services

With hospitals throughout the region, Saint Luke's provides high-quality surgical services at convenient locations. Through state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive techniques, patients receive the surgical care they need while often experiencing shorter, more efficient procedures with faster rehabilitation.

In addition to a wide range of general surgical services, patients have access to surgeons at our world-renowned Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute and Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute for heart and neurological surgery.

Our surgeons use the latest advances in minimally invasive and single-incision surgery, as well as the da Vinci® Surgical System, to help patients get back on their feet faster. These laparoscopic surgeries use small incisions and specially designed surgical instruments, resulting in less pain and smaller scars than traditional open surgery. Our doctors also perform minimally invasive surgery for some heart, urological, gynecological, cancer, colorectal, weight loss, and general surgery procedures.
