Columbia Surgical Associates Services
For more than 50 years, Columbia Surgical Associates has specialized in the surgical treatment of a variety of health problems. When it comes to providing excellent surgical care, experience matters, and the providers at Columbia Surgical Associates offer patients the benefit of over 100 years of combined experience to provide patients with the best possible care in Mid-Missouri.
In order to provide patients with state-of-the-art care, Columbia Surgical Associates employs a wide range of surgical techniques. Columbia Surgical Associates was the first to introduce many of these techniques to the area. From complex open procedures to advanced robotic cases, the surgeons of Columbia Surgical stay on the leading edge of general, vascular, and bariatric surgery to provide the care needed by our patients.
Minimally Invasive Techniques
In the 1990s, Columbia Surgical Associates pioneered the use of minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques in Mid-Missouri. These techniques have resulted in a revolution in patient care. In some cases, recovery time has been reduced from weeks to days; scars are virtually invisible, and surgeries have higher success rates. All of these directly affect patients’ comfort before, during, and after surgery and allow them to resume their lives more quickly.
Treatments Tailored for Every Patient
With exploration and expansion in the use of laparoscopic techniques, virtually every area of specialization within Columbia Surgical Associates has minimally invasive options available for patients. Along with more traditional surgeries, these newer techniques provide more options for physicians and patients that ultimately tailor treatments specific to each patient’s needs, health and lifestyle. Now robotic techniques add a new dimension in advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures offered by the surgeons of CSA.
