Experienced and Skilled Surgical Care
With skilled staff and advanced technologies, Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) is a leading provider of surgical services in the region. Our general surgeons are highly accomplished in the surgical treatment of almost any organ in the body, including the head and neck, breast, skin and soft tissues, abdomen, extremities, and gastrointestinal tract.
Our experienced surgical staff is skilled in modern surgical procedures. For example, whenever possible, we use newer minimally-invasive surgical techniques rather than conventional surgical methods. These procedures involve smaller incisions with relatively minimal tissue damage, which result in fewer complications and allow for quicker post-operative recovery.
At KRMC, we employ national surgical safety standards, which include stringent protocols for providing you a safe, comfortable, and successful patient experience. In addition to your surgeon, our skilled surgical team includes board-certified anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and technicians, and operating room and recovery specialists. Our surgeons and staff work closely with your regular doctor to assure you receive comprehensive care before, during, and after your surgery.
