Surgery Group of Grand Island
The most advanced surgical care in central Nebraska, so you can stay close to home, family and friends
We perform a variety of surgical treatments using the most advanced techniques, and are one of the few surgical groups in central Nebraska to offer minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. Advantages of laparoscopy include less pain, quicker recovery time and less risk of infection than traditional ‘open’ surgical methods.
Additionally, all of our surgeons are certified in Advanced Trauma Life Support, and are trauma surgeons. This is a highly skilled and specialized area of surgery requiring dedication and advanced training.
