Come to us for advanced outpatient surgical services

My Health Connection: your online patient portal

We encourage all our patients to sign up for My Health Connection. This is your personal patient portal to request prescription refills, view your medical records or test results and to contact our office.

For the convenience of residents in southern and central Colorado Springs, UCHealth offers advanced outpatient surgical services at our Memorial Hospital Central facility.

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.

Some of the ways our team provides unmatched quality and care:

  • Accessible. With a surgeon always on-call, you’re covered 24/7.
  • Specialty-trained. All of our surgeons are board-certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. Some are also board-certified by the American Board of Surgery in Surgical Critical Care and the American Board of Vascular Surgeons.
  • Collaborative. Consultation and educational services are available locally and through a variety of outreach efforts.
  • Highly skilled. In addition to general surgery, many of our providers serve as Level I trauma surgeons, ever expanding their surgical skills through a high volume of cases presenting through our emergency departments.

If you have a persistent medical condition, discuss it with your primary care provider to determine if a referral to our surgical team is right for you.

We look forward to hearing from you to schedule an appointment or answer any questions you have about our providers or services.
