Surgical Services at Glens Falls Hospital – We Are Here & Ready To Care For You

For decades, Glens Falls Hospital has provided access to elite surgical services for Glens Falls and the surrounding communities. We take our role as a community-based care provider very seriously, and we work every day to ensure our friends and neighbors throughout the region have access to world-class surgical care close to home.

Today is no different.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals across the country and in our region have continually adapted to ensure the safety of our patients and employees. Early on in the pandemic, that meant closing the hospital to visitors and temporarily suspending elective procedures. Since those early days more than a year and a half ago, we’ve all learned how to adapt to an ever-changing environment, and while we continue to take precautions like masking and social distancing to protect everyone’s health and safety, we are here and ready to serve you – whatever your needs may be.

Our surgical services team, comprised of physicians, nurses, medical and surgical assistants are here every day, ensuring our community has access to best-in-class surgical care without having to travel long distances. From total hip and knee replacements to robotic and minimally invasive procedures we have the staff, expertise and technology to meet your needs right here in Glens Falls. We are continuing to take the needed precautions to ensure our patients and team remain safe amid the pandemic – but we’ve never stopped providing outstanding surgical care.

We’re proud to offer this level of care in our community and are always exploring opportunities to elevate the surgical care and high-quality experience we provide our patients. Our experts specialize in areas such as general surgery, orthopedic, thoracic, urology, otolaryngology, and more, and our compassionate, integrated team will make you feel comfortable and at ease from your first visit to your final follow-up appointment.
