    General Surgery

    As we resume some elective surgeries at Artesia General Hospital, we’ve made some important changes and increased safety measures. Please see this Elective Surgeries Guide for Patients for more information about how we’re keeping our patients, their families and our staff safe and healthy throughout each procedure.

    Few of us think about surgeons in advance, but you’re in good hands at Artesia General Hospital.  We recognize that to our patients, no surgery is ever “routine.”  Our team is dedicated to providing surgical services with compassion for our patients and their families in a comfortable atmosphere. Surgeries are offered in both an inpatient and outpatient setting.
