Surgical Services

Dignity Health’s Sacramento-area hospitals and outpatient surgery centers provide patients a full range of surgical services. In addition to our highly skilled surgeons in specialties from bariatric to cardiac surgery, we offer the support of specially trained anesthesiologists, nurses, technicians and other specialists to meet your needs.

Comprehensive Surgical Care

When it comes to surgery, there are times when urgency is everything and others when advanced planning and preparation are keys to success. The Sacramento-area Dignity Health hospitals are here for you in both situations.

California’s Cardiac Surgery Leaders

Dignity Health Heart & Vascular Institute of Greater Sacramento performs more cardiac procedures than any other hospital in California. That experience, coupled with our commitment to quality surgical services and patient care, routinely leads to better overall outcomes. Both Mercy General Hospital and Mercy San Juan Medical Center exceed national benchmarks for rapid treatment of heart attack patients.

Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence

Dignity Health has two locations designated as Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery: Methodist Hospital of Sacramento and Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael. Those distinctions recognize our comprehensive and personalized approach to treating the patient and providing tools for lifelong success, including:
  • Pre-surgery education
  • Physician consultations
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Exercise planning
  • Support groups
  • Post-surgery follow-up
