What We Do - Surgical Associates of Grinnell

What We Do

Chronic conditions and IllnessSurgical Associates’ surgeons diagnose and treat nearly every surgical illness or chronic condition located between the upper neck and the toes; what we don’t do is heart surgery, brain surgery, and major joint and bone surgery---though that could change at a moment’s notice should we add an additional surgical specialist! So if you’re not sure if we can help, give us a call and ask; chances are we can.

Our group is known for innovation and leadership in the development and application of new---even futuristic---technologies and approaches to the surgical treatment of disease. That’s why Grinnell has a reputation for excellence in minimally invasive (micro) surgery, which is our standard approach to everything in the abdomen and chest. Even newer approaches, such as single micro-incision surgery and the Da Vinci surgical system have become standards for our surgeons; and in 2011 we added an amazing new incision-less surgical approach for the first time.

Our innovative work is also the reason why the Grinnell hospital is a Level I Center of Excellence for Obesity Surgery; the only hospital of its size in the country accredited by the American College of Surgeons with this highest of distinctions.
