Surgery

The Alaska Native Medical Center’s (ANMC) Surgery Department provides general surgery for all ages including: Non-cardiac Thoracic; Laparoscopic; Vascular; Trauma/Burn; and Endoscopy.

ANMC’s Department of Surgery provides outstanding comprehensive surgical services for all age groups. Our surgery facilities allow many patients to come in on the day of surgery and leave a few hours after surgery to recover in their own homes with family and friends. Your provider will let you know if your procedure requires a short inpatient stay.

Before your Procedure

Most of ANMC’s General Surgeons are members of the American College of Surgeons and are instrumental in ANMC’s Level II Trauma designation. The Surgery Department also has a General Surgical Residency program with the Phoenix Banner Health Residency Program. All of the Registered Nurse case managers who meet the criteria have a certification in case management in Surgery.

The Surgery clinic is where patients are screened and treated if they need to have some lumps and bumps removed using a local anesthetic. Larger procedures are completed in the Operating Rooms or the endoscopy suites.

The Surgery clinic has many resources for patients about their procedure.

ANMC’s Surgery Clinic staff reminds patients to please get all of their health screenings completed as soon as they are due. Regular health screenings can detect and in most cases prevent the onset of cancer and other health-related complications.

The Surgery Clinic is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
