General SurgeryOur general and specialty surgeons offer comprehensive evaluation and a full range of operative solutions to treat the medical conditions of our patients. We work in close collaboration with our colleagues in other specialties, as well as with our patients' referring physician to ensure exceptional continuity of care and excellent medical outcomes.

In addition to delivering the highest quality medical care, we strive to help our patients recover as quickly as possible. We use advanced surgical technologies and techniques that are often minimally invasive and help expedite recovery. Our patients frequently find they can return to work or resume regular activities much sooner.

Thanks to innovation and modern technology, many surgical procedures can now be performed at Springfield Clinic's Ambulatory Surgery & Endoscopy Center. More complex surgeries still require hospitalization following the procedure and are performed in hospital operating rooms. Our surgeons maintain privileges at most major hospitals in the Central Illinois region, including St. John's Hospital and Memorial Medical Center, and offer convenient and accessible outpatient care through numerous satellite facilities.

We are committed to maintaining the highest level of skills and knowledge in our respective fields and continually seek to improve and expand the services we offer our patients. We recruit some of the finest young medical talent to complement the vast experience of our veteran surgeons.

While medicine and technology may change, some things don’t--especially the respect and compassion we have for our patients.
