At MultiCare Health System, our experienced [general — link to new general surgery page] and specialty surgeons have experience in some of today’s most advanced surgical techniques. They also realize that surgery is more than just a procedure. The primary mission of our surgeons and care teams is to serve you. They want to make sure you are involved in decisions about your care, listen to your concerns and answer all the questions you will have about surgery.
MultiCare surgeons use leading-edge tools and technologies to perform a wide range of general and specialty surgeries. As a result, we are able to improve patient outcomes and reduce rates of complications.
In 2005, we were the first to perform robotic-assisted surgeries in Tacoma. Since then, we have continued to lead the region in this minimally invasive approach. Despite the name, robotic-assisted surgeries are not performed by robots. The technologies give surgeons control over small instruments and allow them to perform complicated procedures through small incisions, which means smaller scars and less time to recover.
When you’re having surgery, you want to trust that the surgeon has the experience needed to make sure you have the best possible result.
Our cardiac surgery teams perform more than 450 open-heart surgeries each year. We have also been named a Center of Excellence in minimally invasive procedures for gynecology and rectal cancer.
We never stop striving to improve our care, because we know that having surgery is a big decision. As a result, our surgeons are always exploring new, more effective approaches to surgical care.
We’re here to make your surgical experience as comfortable and efficient as possible.

Our surgeons are at the forefront of their field, introducing the latest robotic technologies, including single site gallbladder removal, to patients at MultiCare.
In a single-site procedure, the surgeon makes only one incision, or cut, rather than multiple incisions, to help minimize complications.
