Acute Care Surgery

When the unexpected happens, our trauma and acute surgeons are ready. They make the region’s only team of board-certified acute care surgeons specializing in critical care. They’re here 24/7 – not just on call – to diagnose treat and perform life-saving surgery. From emergency appendectomies to emergency trauma surgeries, our dedicated team is here around the clock. Our acute care surgeons are backed by a full-range of specialists and advanced technologies.

After surgery, our acute care surgery team follows up on patients in our state-of-the-art intensive care units, which include a surgical/trauma ICU, neurosurgical ICU and pediatric ICU. Each room features advanced monitoring equipment to help our patients receive the best possible care.

Our Acute Care Surgery program is part of Parkview’s verified level II adult and pediatric trauma centers, designated by the American College of Surgeons. It’s led by a surgeon specially trained in the management of traumatic injuries, emergency surgery and critical care surgery.

Our acute care surgeons are board-certified and specialize in critical care.
