The physicians at Southwest Surgical Associates are all board-certified general surgeons uniquely trained to treat a vast range of health concerns. They have years of experience performing procedures such as appendectomy, adrenalectomy, thyroidectomy, hernia surgery, and colorectal surgery.

They offer diagnostic and screening colonoscopies, as well as specialized care. Patients can receive bariatric surgery and treatment for heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The team also includes specialists in breast surgery, including lumpectomy, mastectomy, and other advanced procedures for treating breast cancer.

Southwest Surgical Associates believe they can give the best surgical care through collaboration between patients, staff, and physicians. To that end, the team builds relationships and truly cares for each patient and their unique concerns and medical needs.
