Sometimes you can carefully plan for your surgery; other times you have a health crisis that lands you in the emergency room. No matter what type of surgery you face, you're in good hands in the Sutter Health network.
Across the Sutter Health network, experienced surgeons care for a wide range of health needs, either at a hospital or at one of Sutter’s 37 ambulatory surgery centers, allowing you to receive care close to home and without an overnight stay.
General surgeons in the Sutter Health network are trained in a broad spectrum of diseases, performing thousands of operations each year. They are as adept with a laparoscope as they are with a scalpel. U.S. News and World Report, the Joint Commission, the Leapfrog Group and Aetna Institute of Quality are among the many groups that have recognized Sutter Health for surgical and patient care excellence.
