General Surgery

From emergency appendectomies to scheduled hernia repairs, every year hundreds of quality general surgeries are performed at Nevada Regional Medical Center.

Our surgeons offer many laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgical options. NRMC surgeons are also trained in trauma or emergency surgery.  They are capable of dealing initially with almost any type of surgical emergency but are most often called upon to stop internal bleeding, remove gallbladder or appendix, correct bowl obstruction or close perforated lung or intestine.

No referral is needed. To schedule your initial visit with one of our surgeons, call (417) 448-2121.
