Comprehensive surgical care

At HealthONE, our number one priority is your health. This is why our physicians, nurses and medical staff work together before, during and after your surgery to ensure you receive high-quality medical care. We work one-on-one with each patient to discuss their diagnosis and options for treatment. We then create an individualized treatment plan that is designed to maximize healing.

Our doctors are experienced in performing procedures for a wide range of surgical specialties, including:

Bariatric surgery

Sometimes, patients find that traditional weight loss methods are unsuccessful. This is why our doctors specialize in using bariatric surgery as a way to help patients who are morbidly obese lose weight.

We offer many options for bariatric surgery, such as:

  • Duodenal switch
  • Gastric bypass
  • Gastric lap-band

ENT surgery

Our ear, nose and throat (ENT) team provides treatment for conditions of the head and neck. We offer surgical procedures to treat a variety of these conditions, including:

  • Allergies
  • Head, face and neck cancer
  • Swallowing conditions

We also offer a specialized image-guided surgery for sinus repair.

Gynecological surgery

Our OB/GYNs—doctors who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology—provide diagnosis and treatment for a variety of women's health conditions. We offer surgical procedures to treat:

  • Conditions of the uterus
  • Gynecologic cancers
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Urogynecology conditions

Heart and vascular surgery

We offer a wide range of cardiac surgical procedures to treat a variety of cardiac and vascular conditions, including:

  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Heart attack
  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure

Limb preservation surgery

There are certain conditions, such as chronic wounds or diabetes, that can lead to the need for amputation as a result of poor circulation, infection or neuropathy. Our specialized procedures for limb preservation help reduce the number of amputations needed. Our goal is to preserve as much of the limb as possible to help you regain function.


Our neurosurgeons work together to provide care for conditions of the brain and spine. Some of the neurological conditions we treat surgically include:

  • Brain aneurysms
  • Brain tumors
  • Complex spine conditions
  • Disc herniation
  • Epilepsy
  • Nerve compression
  • Skull base tumors

Brain surgery

We also offer a unique procedure—known as stereotactic radiosurgery—for brain conditions. This is a unique process in which precise radiation beams are focused to treat a specific area in the brain. This procedure avoids surgically opening the skull, with favorable results for the patient’s quality of life, treatment cost and clinical outcomes.

Orthopedic surgery

Our orthopedic specialists provides complete surgical care for many orthopedic injuries and conditions.

We offer a wide range of orthopedic procedures, including:

  • Joint replacements (including hip, knee and shoulder)
  • Spine surgery
  • Surgery for sports-related injuries

Hand surgeries

We offer specialized hand and hand reconstructive surgery for patients with disfiguring and/or painful hand conditions. Our surgeons work to help restore hand appearance and function.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery

Our surgeons provide access to plastic and reconstructive surgery. We understand that considering one of these procedures can be a very delicate process, which is why our surgeons provide compassionate, comprehensive care. We work hard to listen and understand your unique needs before, during and after surgery.

We offer a wide variety of options for both men and women. Specializing in both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, our surgeons take the time create an individual plan to improve your self-image and get back to your life.

Surgery for stroke

Our hospitals offer advanced surgical treatment for stroke (cerebrovascular accident), including endovascular thrombectomy. Thrombectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to remove the clot that is preventing blood flow to the brain. Patients who undergo the endovascular thrombectomy early enough often recover with little to no long-term damage.

During this procedure, a small incision is made so our doctors can effectively remove the obstruction that is blocking blood flow, dramatically reducing the damage certain types of stroke can cause.

Urologic surgery

Urologic surgery aims to correct conditions of the bladder, kidney, pelvic floor and urinary tract.

We offer a variety of urologic surgical procedures, including:

  • Bladder suspension
  • Cystectomy
  • Nephrectomy
  • Prostatectomy
  • Pyeloplasty

Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is a type of operation that can be completed with fewer and smaller incisions than traditional surgery. This offers many benefits to patients, including:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Reduced blood loss

Minimally invasive surgery for children

Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children offers a minimally invasive pediatric surgery program so kids can be kids again as soon as possible after surgery. Our pediatric surgeons are experts in reducing pain, lowering risk of complications during surgery and comforting your child before and after their surgery.

Robotic surgery

Our doctors use advanced robotic technology to improve your quality of life with minimal interruption. Robotic surgery requires only a few small incisions, which leads to numerous benefits.

During robotic surgery, your surgeon is in complete control of the robotic technology. The surgeon operates from a console just a few feet away from the operating table, and their hand movements translate to the robotic technology. The robot has tiny surgical instruments and a high-definition, 3D camera, which allows the surgeon to make precise movements.

Thoracic surgery

Our highly specialized thoracic surgeons work collaboratively with pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to create an individualized treatment plan designed specifically for your needs. Our advanced surgical procedures include minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques including video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) resections for lung cancer and robot-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS). We also deploy minimally invasive techniques for conditions affecting the esophagus such as achalasia, hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Thoracic conditions we treat include:

  • Achalasia
  • Barrett’s esophagus
  • Chest wall tumors
  • Diaphragm paralysis
  • Empyema
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Esophageal motility disorders
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Hiatal hernia
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Lung cancer
  • Lung nodules
  • Mediastinal masses
  • Pleural effusions
  • Pleural diseases
