  • Convenience: Our specialty clinics are connected to Trinity Regional Medical Center. We can provide all your care at one convenient location. Our clinic teams work seamlessly with hospital surgical staff to coordinate your care before, during and after surgery.
  • Minimally invasive surgery: Laparoscopic surgery uses small instruments and tiny incisions. The minimally invasive approach may mean you spend less time in the hospital or recover faster. Less-invasive surgery options include laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) for gallstones and laparoscopic hernia surgery.
  • Increased access: Our team performs certain general surgeries and colonoscopy screenings at nearby Humboldt County Memorial Hospital. This effort makes it possible for people living in the northernmost parts of Iowa to receive high-quality surgical care without the hardship of extensive travel.
  • Wound care expertise: We work closely with Trinity Wound Healing Center to care for wounds and other sores that develop related to surgery or other reasons. Our specialists use the latest treatments, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which no other local center offers. Learn more about Trinity Wound Healing Center.
