General Surgery

Grand Itasca is dedicated to providing exceptional surgical outcomes for each patient. Our General Surgery department offers quality care with a focus on minimally-invasive procedures. As a result, patients have less pain and can return to everyday activities sooner.

Anesthesiology

Grand Itasca’s CRNAs are part of a skilled team that works with you before, during, and after surgery. After a thorough evaluation, our CRNAs will develop an anesthesia plan tailored to your unique needs, then carefully monitor you during surgery. Throughout preparation, surgery, and recovery, patient safety is our top concern.

Breast Surgery

Breast surgery is almost always a recommended treatment for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer. Our dedicated breast surgeon performs several types of breast surgeries, depending on the location of the tumor, stage of cancer and other factors. Your surgeon will work closely with oncologists to determine the best path for initial surgery, while also taking into consideration the larger breast cancer treatment plan at Grand Itasca. We also perform preventative (prophylactic) mastectomies for select patients who are at high risk for hereditary breast cancer.
