The board-certified general surgeons at UCHealth Surgical Care – Longmont offer a broad range of basic and specialized inpatient and outpatient surgical services to children and adults.

With improved technology and advances in anesthesia and pain control, many less invasive surgical procedures are now being performed on an outpatient basis. Compared to inpatient surgery, outpatient surgery provides many patient benefits, such as convenience, lower cost, reduced stress, and predictable scheduling.

Our specialists are dedicated to the Longmont – Carbon Valley area and surrounding communities. We practice at UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital, Longs Peak Surgery Center, and Broomfield Hospital.
