General surgery is essentially defined as any surgical procedure that focuses on the treatment of abdominal organs such as the intestines, stomach, colon, liver or gallbladder. General surgery may also broadly include minor surgical treatment outside of the abdominal area of the body to treat any injury, deformity or disease such as a cyst or tumor. Because the physicians, many of whom hold an interest in the Surgery Center, were involved in the development of the operating rooms, they choose Willow Creek Surgery Center as the ideal facility to perform procedures. The OR suites are brand new and house state of the art equipment that has been chosen by our medical staff to best suit the needs of their cases.
As is the case with all facilities under the First Surgical Partners Inc. umbrella, the staff at Willow Creek Surgery Center is carefully chosen. Our facility is very personal. This means that the chief administrators are directly involved in the hiring of the clinical staff, ensuring that the highest degree of professionalism and customer care are always maintained. Not only do the patients notice the heightened level of compassion and dedication from the nursing staff at Willow Creek Surgery Center, but the physicians do as well, making this facility their preferred place to perform general surgical procedures.
Our surgeons are all Board Certified and each has held a well-respected practice in the Palestine area for several years. While all have privileges at other facilities in the East Texas Medical Community as well at here at Willow Creek Surgery Center, they often choose to perform procedures here for the added convenience for their patients, their ability to influence the surgical schedule, their high degree of confidence and familiarity with the nursing staff, and the elevated level of postoperative care.
