Surgical Services


Whether your surgery is outpatient or requires an inpatient stay, caregivers in the surgery department at Texas Health Rockwall are focused on providing safe, high quality care beginning with pre-op through surgery and recovery and hospital stay, if needed.

Safety and Quality Matter

This focus on safety and quality is evident in the many awards for which we are proud including the most recent Hospital Safety Grade by The Leapfrog Group. In the surgery department, safety measures include thorough communication with surgeons and patients before and after surgery, attention to infection prevention and required “time-outs” prior to surgery that allows each member of the surgical team to verify patient information and expectations. These processes and many others help ensure that our patients have the safest possible environment when they need it most.

As much as we appreciate the awards we have received,  we are most proud of our caregivers and the quality, support and personal attention they provide patients right here in Rockwall.  This quality is reflected in what our patients say after their surgery.

If you are considering elective surgery or facing a diagnosis that may require surgery, we encourage you to review your options.  Search for a physician on our staff by specialty and learn about the quality ratings of the hospital you choose.  And because quality counts, ask for Texas Health Rockwall by name.


Surgical Services include but are not limited to:

Colorectal conditions

The lower part of your digestive tract, called the large intestine, is comprised of the colon and rectum and is also sometimes called the colorectal region. It can develop issues that range from occasionally bothersome to life-threatening. As an example, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in men and women who live in the U.S., with more than 145,000 new cases expected in 2019.1

There are also a number of noncancerous conditions that can cause pain and discomfort. These include, but are not limited to, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, blockages and ruptures, infected pockets (diverticulitis) and abscesses, and others that can take a toll of your quality of life and may require medical care. In the case of cancer or when lifestyle changes, medicine, and other options do not ease symptoms of noncancerous conditions, your doctor may suggest surgery.

Types of surgery

In the past, surgeons made large incisions in skin and muscle so that they could directly see and work on the area of concern. This is called open surgery. Today doctors still perform open surgery, but can also perform many colorectal procedures using minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic-assisted surgery, possibly with da Vinci Xi Surgical System technology. Both minimally invasive surgical options require a few small incisions that doctors use to insert surgical equipment and a camera for viewing. In laparoscopic surgery, doctors use special long-handled tools to perform surgery while viewing magnified images from the laparoscope (camera) on a video screen.

General surgery includes a variety of procedures hernia repair, gall bladder removal, appendectomy, and even colonoscopy.  

Robotic assist may be an option for many patients so ask your surgeon if you are a candidate.
