Surgery

UT Health Tyler hosts a state-of-the-art, regional referral surgical center. With a host of surgical suites — several dedicated to specific types of procedures — our operating rooms offer the latest technology, including imaging integration, which provides real-time images during procedures.

In recent years, we have enhanced our services even further by building spacious new operating suites, averaging 720 square feet each. We also have expanded our post-anesthesia care unit, added a dedicated endovascular suite and implemented many technological advancements in the neurosurgery and oncology surgery areas.

Specially trained surgery teams make sure patients receive excellent care both pre-and post-operatively to help alleviate anxiety and hasten recovery. One of these programs is Healthy Connections, a pre-op education program that prepares patients for their surgical procedures and ensures they are set to have an optimal outcome. Onsite radiology and lab services also offer valuable assistance in caring for our surgery patients.

In short, our patients experience the highest levels of quality from our experienced surgical staff, aided by the amenities of our many renovations and additions. Providing outstanding surgical services is just one more way UT Health delivers care you and your family deserves – care that is second to none.
