The KSB Surgery Department consists of 25 physicians and three endoscopists with remarkable experience and longevity at KSB Hospital. With the recent expansion of the surgical department, KSB now has five surgical suites and one cystoscopy room. Each operating suite has video integration which allows video documentation of surgical procedures and visualization of the surgical site within the operating suite.

A recent investment in technology in the Endoscopy Department helps patients with digestive disorders. The Bravo pH system is now being incorporated to allow doctors to test patients’ pH levels for gastroesophageal reflux disease during everyday activities.

The KSB Day Surgery Department is also providing its patients with the convenience of more procedures offered close to home, including medical pain management and interventional radiology procedures.

Continued investment in staff, education, technology, and facilities help make the KSB Surgical Services Departments leaders in providing excellent patient care.
