In addition to staffing all inpatient and outpatient emergency general surgery consults and conducting 5,000 trauma evaluations each year, the Division of Trauma and Emergency Surgery performs more than two thousand general surgery operations annually. The cases range from lipoma excisions to complex abdominal wall hernias and reconstruction. For patients who require elective surgery, we are the referral center for many hospitals in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and even northern Mexico.
Our goal is to continually provide a great experience for our patients both in the clinical and hospital setting. Our vast continuous experience with complex emergency cases provides us with the tools and skill set to provide great service, especially in the elective setting.
