At MultiCare, we offer surgical services for a broad range of conditions including heart, vascular, gastrointestinal, gynecological, urological and bariatric (weight loss) specialties.
Our surgeons use the latest technology, innovative treatments and a collaborative, team approach to provide patients with expert care. Our surgeons have extensive training and experience in nearly every surgical specialty, including:
At MultiCare, we are regional experts in performing bariatric surgery — a permanent weight-loss solution for obesity. Our bariatric team includes surgeons, physicians, nurses, dieticians and psychologists. Together, we provide effective, comprehensive care, helping patients achieve their long-term weight loss goals.
We provide superior care for patients who need surgery for cancer treatment. Depending on your individual needs, we use surgery in combination with other innovative cancer treatments such as CyberKnife, a noninvasive radiation therapy. We also offer access to clinical trials through the MultiCare Institute for Research and Innovation and our relationship with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
Our surgeons perform colorectal surgery for cancers and polyps of the colon and rectum, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and other bowel conditions.
Our ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists work together to evaluate, diagnose and treat all types of ENT conditions, including inner ear disorders, sleep apnea and thyroid conditions.
MultiCare surgeons work closely with our gastroenterology partners to offer comprehensive treatment of conditions that affect the esophagus and stomach. Conditions that we treat surgically include esophageal and gastric (stomach) cancer, motility disorders, such as Achalasia, hiatal hernias and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD. MultiCare is also the first in the South Puget Sound area to offer the LINX® Reflux Management System for treating GERD
If you have gallstones or other gallbladder conditions, our robotic-assisted, laparoscopic surgery may be right for you. In many cases, gallbladder removal is possible using only a single incision through the navel. Using fewer incisions, this procedure offers a lower risk of bleeding and scarring, and a faster recovery time. MultiCare is a leader in this new, minimally invasive surgical technique in our area, and single-site gallbladder surgery is currently being performed at MultiCare exclusively by surgeon Prakash Gatta, MD.
Our gynecological and urological specialists use the least invasive, most effective treatment options to get you back on your feet. We offer the full spectrum of minimally invasive surgeries to treat pelvic floor and urinary tract disorders including robotic surgery for conditions such as urinary incontinence and vaginal prolapse.

A hernia is a bulge caused by tissue pushing through a weak spot in the muscle that is supposed to be holding the tissue in place. Most hernias are abdominal hernias that occur in the belly and groin areas. Our surgical specialists are often able to repair a hernia in an ambulatory setting, so that you can go home the same day, and get back to your normal life.
Our team of board-certified neurosurgeons has years of expertise in performing complex, delicate procedures in the brain, spine and nervous system. Depending on your individual case, we may be able to use minimally invasive surgery, with smaller incisions. We can also treat many conditions that were previously considered inoperable with noninvasive radiation therapy using CyberKnife. Our highly skilled surgeons are also experienced in traditional, open surgery, which may be the best treatment option for some neurological conditions.
