General Surgery

Having surgery is an important decision, and so is choosing where to have surgery. At Regional Health Rapid City Hospital and Spearfish Hospital, our care teams are made up of experienced surgeons and specialists equipped with the latest diagnostic and surgical technology.

Regional Health Rapid City Hospital’s Department of General Surgery comprises board-certified surgeons who provide evaluation and treatment for a full range of general surgery conditions. Our providers work collaboratively with other medical specialties to provide optimal patient care.

The da Vinci System is utilized at Rapid City Hospital to perform minimally invasive surgery. With this system, patients usually have a shorter stay in the hospital, experience less pain, have reduced risk of infection and recover faster. Discuss this option with our providers for additional information on surgical procedures performed using the da Vinci.
