Many of our surgeons are skilled in advanced laparoscopic procedures including gallbladder removal, appendectomies, inguinal hernia repair, hiatal hernia repair, colon resection, GERD nissen fundoplication (reflux) and gastro intestinal surgery.

Our surgeons provide the latest treatment of abdominal, reflux, colon and pelvic floor disease, as well as treatment for incontinence and diverticulosis. We have four of a very select group of surgeons in the United States trained in sphincter-preserving management of rectal cancer.

We offer our patients state of the art techniques and procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease of the breast. This specialization is not limited to treatment of breast cancer, but covers all areas of care. With our stereotactic table, we are the only surgical group in the Inland Northwest with the ability to perform a stereotactic breast biopsy in our office. This will many times speed up your diagnosis and treatment plan.

Our special focus on the surgical procedures and techniques for the treatment of cancers means you will receive top quality care from surgeons that specialize in this area of surgical care.

Columbia Surgery Center is a fully-licensed, Medicare approved ambulatory facility created for patients under the care of our specialists. The center was developed as an alternative to a traditional hospital setting, providing a safe, convenient and decidedly specialized medical experience. Our staff is completely focused on the needs of our patients.


Columbia Surgery Center has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Accreditation distinguishes this surgical center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

Status as an accredited organization means Columbia Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 6,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.

When you have your surgery in our surgery center, your anesthetic will be given by a board certified Anesthesiologist from the Anesthesia Associates group.
