Surgical Services at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital
by Laura Lewis, Surgical Services Nurse Manager
The Surgical Services Department at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital offers a variety of surgery options in a modern, state-of-the-art surgical suite. Our staff consists of caring and compassionate surgeons, anesthesia, registered nurses, and other medical professionals trained to provide excellent surgical care.
Our Surgical department handles an array of procedures in our new operating rooms and six-bay recovery area. These include general, OB/GYN surgery, eye surgery, urology and podiatry. A large percentage of the general and GYN procedures we perform are laparoscopic, including appendix, gallbladder, hernia, hysterectomy, ovarian and tubal ligation, allowing for a much faster recovery period.
Regular hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a surgical call team available for emergencies occurring after hours, on weekends and holidays.
The Surgical Services Department at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital continues to grow. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Malti Dave`, Pain management specialist. The Pain Clinic follows a comprehensive approach to each patient’s individual pain management needs. Our specialists assist patients in living with their pain caused by a variety of medical conditions such as arthritis, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and tendonitis.
Here at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital we welcome change and are committed to improving the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve.
