Surgery

UnityPoint Health – Keokuk's surgical services program is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care to the tri-state area community. We are committed to using highly skilled physicians, nurses and other health care providers to offer excellence in patient care and outcomes. We offer a wide spectrum of procedures, surgical interventions and leading-edge techniques.

Innovative Treatments

Our surgeons are highly trained across multiple disciplines, allowing us to perform surgeries ranging from the most microscopic and delicate procedures to those routinely done on an outpatient basis.

We know that the idea of surgery and recovery can sometimes cause a lot of anxiety, but know your UnityPoint Health – Keokuk team is here to relieve your fears and provide support and compassion to you and your family every step of the way.

Before surgery you'll meet with your doctor, discuss risks and benefits, pre-register and complete necessary tests and procedures. It is important to us that you get answers to all of your questions, and please don't hesitate to ask. 

Pre-Register

To save you time, pre-registration can be completed online. Online pre-registration must be completed 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. 

Your Health Care Team

A surgical technician sets up the instruments needed for surgery and assists in surgery. A circulating nurse is charged with your care and ensure sterile procedures are used.
