General Surgery

Surgical Services - Visalia, California

Comprehensive surgical care for general surgery and complex health concerns is offered on an inpatient and outpatient basis at Kaweah Health Medical Center in Visalia. We understand that general surgery is not routine for our patients, so we work closely with patients, families, and their primary doctors to be sure that every question and concern is addressed.

At Kaweah Health we are ready to care for you, SAFELY. Our services may look a little different in the new normal, but our commitment to our mission, where health is our passion, excellence is our focus and compassion is our promise, remains the same.
