Because we see more than 23,000 patient visits a year, we have the expertise and the capacity to manage any surgical need, including high-complexity operations. This experience draws on a legacy of innovation at Michigan, where extracorporeal life support technology was invented and endocrine surgery was perfected, and where today we’re setting the national standard for treatment of burn injuries and cancer.
Across a broad range of specialties, we excel at:
- Multidisciplinary care: By assembling a team of experts from multiple specializations, we can deliver the best care to our patients while also reducing the time patients spend at the hospital — making our clinics a single point of contact for all your questions and needs. Our programs include care for bowel control, bariatric surgery, and hernia.
- Complex operations: From trauma care at our certified Level 1 Trauma Center to advanced surgical treatment for metastatic colon cancer, our surgeons perform more than 7,000 operations each year across multiple specialties, which gives us the experience to offer procedures that other institutions can’t — all backed by the abundant resources of Michigan Medicine, ranked among the best hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
- Patient-centered care: We’re always striving to improve the experience we offer patients, making health care more compassionate and more convenient. Recently, we launched our Surgery eClinic, which enables patients to receive follow-up care from the comfort of their home via video call with their care team.
