More about our surgical services
Here are some things you may want to know about your surgery at Prosser Memorial Hospital. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We offer laparoscopic surgery. We use laparoscopic technology in our general surgery and gynecological procedures whenever possible. Laparoscopic surgeries can be less invasive and easier to recover from than traditional surgeries. They also leave smaller scars—some of which may fade away with time.
Our surgeons are board certified. We put a premium on hiring exceptional medical staff. That's why all of the surgeons on staff at Prosser Memorial Health are board certified in their relative fields. This means they have completed rigorous training and met the high standards needed to perform general surgery procedures on patients.
Our financial services department can help answer any questions you may have about insurance. This includes questions about preauthorization of surgeries or procedures.
