We offer a full range of surgical services in almost every medical specialty — everything from general surgery to treat colorectal cancer, gastroesophageal reflux and hernias, to minimally invasive surgical options.
Minimally invasive options
St. Cloud Regional Medical Center’s surgeons are recognized for their expertise in minimally invasive procedures. By using miniature cameras with microscopes, tiny fiber-optic flashlights and high-definition monitors, surgeons can perform surgery through small incisions that take only a few stitches to close. Smaller incisions result in less blood loss, less pain and a quicker recovery. We offer:
- Arthroscopic surgery
- Endovascular techniques (catheter-guided procedures)
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Laser surgery

At St. Cloud Regional Medical Center, we offer a variety of services including General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Urological Surgery, Orthopaedic and Gynecological Surgery. The Department of Surgical Services at St. Cloud Regional Medical Center encompasses five areas of service to the Surgical Customer. After registering with the 'One Call Scheduling' department, the customer will be given an appointment to see the Preoperative nurse specialist. This appointment is scheduled 2 days prior to the scheduled procedure.
The Preoperative nurse specialist will assist the customer in performing the necessary testing, and assessments ordered by the customer's physician. The customer will then be informed of all expectations regarding time of arrival, pre-surgery prep, and post procedure education.On the day of the procedure, the patient will report to the Out Patient Surgery area located at the West Wing of the hospital. There the outpatient staff will prepare the patient for the procedure as well as ask the patient for specific information such as having the patient identify their name, the procedure, the physician, and then will assist the staff in marking their 'site' in accordance to the National Patient Safety Goals.
Immediately after the procedure, the patient will be transferred to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit. In this area, your pain will be managed, and you will be monitored to assure safe recovery from the Anesthesia medications. If the patient is scheduled to be discharged home, they will be returned to the Same Day Care area for final instructions and will be discharged from this area. If they are to be admitted to the Hospital, they will be assigned a room and transferred to the appropriate area once their condition is stable.
It is our goal to provide each customer with individualized, safe, professional care. You may contact us at (407) 498-3647. We look forward to serving you, and most of all, we appreciate your business.
