General Surgery

Our surgeons are highly trained, board-certified and provide 24/7/365 surgical coverage.

Estes Park Health can take care of your scheduled or emergent surgery needs close to home, close to family and close to your primary care physician. Our surgeons are committed to providing excellent patient care and are champions of enhancing the overall patient experience.

Our skilled surgeons believe that the single most important thing they can do for a patient is to make the possibility of having surgery less scary and anxiety-provoking. Our surgeons know that each patient has their own unique personality, history, level of anxiety and expectations, so they will answer every question to ensure understanding of the procedure being performed.
