Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center has one of the largest and most experienced groups of gastroenterologic and general surgeons in the United States. Our surgeons are recognized internationally for their performance of complex procedures with high levels of patient safety and satisfactory outcomes. We have
expertise in several areas including hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery, surgical management of breast disease, morbid obesity surgery, endocrine surgery, abdominal wall hernias, and surgical oncology, including melanoma and perform over 6,000 procedures each year. Our surgeons are also leaders in the use of minimally invasive surgery.
We take a collaborative team approach, which results in better outcomes and more accurate diagnosis. Our general surgeons work and collaborate with other specialists involved in the care of surgical patients - which results in more comprehensive care.
The patient's care will be provided by a highly qualified nursing staff. Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center was re-designated the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet status in 2009 due to our commitment to interdisciplinary practice, ongoing professional development, use of evidence-based practice in the delivery of nursing care and ongoing nursing research. We were the 37th hospital in the nation and first in Texas and the Southwest to receive the honor in 2001, and again in 2005. St. Luke's has joined the elite one percent of hospitals in the nation to achieve this status three times.
