A Convenient Choice for the Best Possible Care

Choosing where to have a surgical procedure isn’t always easy, and not all surgery centers are the same. The experience and skill of the surgeon and staff must be taken into account, as well as the surgery center’s record on how well it performs in key areas.

At Tanner Health System, quality patient care is always our foremost priority. In state-of-the-art surgery centers located at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica and Higgins General Hospital in Bremen  — as well as a surgical suite for gastroenterology and urology procedures at Tanner Medical Center/East Alabama in Wedowee, Alabama — we treat our patients as if they are members of our own families. Tanner's experiences and highly trained surgery and patient care teams ensure that every possible precaution is taken to limit complications, that patients are treated with respect and courtesy, and that our surgical teams deliver the best possible outcome.

Advanced Options for Outpatient Care

Many procedures that once required an overnight hospital stay may now be performed safely and quickly during the same day with or without an overnight visit. The time you will spend in the hospital depends upon your specific situation. Your surgeon can advise you regarding the possible benefits of having an outpatient procedure. The vast majority — about 85 percent — of all surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis.

For most people, surgery is not the ordeal it used to be. Minimally invasive procedures — made possible through advances in medicine and technology — allow physicians to work with more precise tools through smaller incisions, allowing for a faster and safer recovery for patients.

About 90 percent of all surgical cases performed at Tanner Health System are on a same-day basis, with the patient discharged from the hospital to recover at home within 24-hours of their procedure.

Tanner offers a variety of minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery options for a wide range of procedures, including:

  • Gynecological procedures, including hysterectomy
  • Gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy)
  • Orthopedic/spine procedures
  • Ear, nose and throat (ENT) procedures
  • And more

With surgery centers located in Carrollton, Villa Rica and Bremen, most patients will have the option to have their procedure performed
at the Tanner location nearest them.
