When surgery is required to treat a disease or injury, or to help improve bodily function or appearance, Vail Health's Surgical Associates facilities and care team are trusted by locals and visitors alike. The surgeons and support staff of Surgical Associates are experts in emergency and trauma care and also perform general surgeries, cancer surgery and critical care surgeries using techniques including laparoscopic and robotic surgery
To prepare for your upcoming surgery, please review our pre-surgical planning page. Anesthesia will be used during your surgery. The type of anesthesia your doctor chooses depends on many factors, including the procedure you are having and your current health. Educating yourself and your post-surgery caregivers about your procedure prior to surgery is an important part of the planning process. In addition to our expert care team and state-of-the-art facilities, Vail is simply a great place to recover. Please explore our other website pages to familiarize yourself with our surgical specialties, prepare for your surgery and learn more about what to expect on the day of your surgery.
The Surgical Associates team performs surgeries at Vail Health Hospital. While the Vail Valley Surgery Center has locations in Vail and Edwards and is a privately owned, Vail Health's Surgical Services are a part of our non-profit community hospital.
