To top it off, our surgeons are also actively involved in clinical research, using the latest research findings in their practice to best instruct medical students and residents, while ensuring that their patients receive top-notch care.

Our surgical specialties are offered at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Chandler Regional Medical Center, and in a variety of outpatient surgery centers, in partnership with USPI. Regardless of which facility you choose for surgery, you will receive excellent care by our dedicated and passionate surgical staff.

Our multidisciplinary approach
Dignity Health Medical Group surgeons believe in a team approach to surgical care. Multidisciplinary teams are utilized to provide an evidence based approach to the treatment of your disease and its symptoms. We believe that good patient education is good medicine and we work to educate patients about risk factors and lifestyle changes that can help prevent disease.
In addition to utilizing a team-based approach to care, all of Dignity Health Medical Group’s surgeons are either board-certified or working towards their board certification. When you choose a physician who is certified, you can be confident he or she meets nationally recognized standards for education, knowledge, experience and skills to provide high quality care in a specific medical specialty, above and beyond basic medical licensure.
