About Western Surgical Group
Welcome to Northern Nevada’s Largest Surgical Team
Western Surgical Group was founded in 1996 by the joining of four solo surgical practices. Since then the group has expanded to 16 highly skilled and professional surgeons, 6 mid-level practitioners, and a staff of over 50.
We are committed to providing compassionate health care while remaining on the “cutting edge” of innovative technologies and advanced breakthroughs in surgical treatment in our diverse range of surgical specialties.
MISSION STATEMENT: WESTERN SURGICAL GROUP STRIVES TO PROVIDE THE HIGHEST QUALITY, PATIENT CENTERED SURGICAL CARE POSSIBLE.
To achieve our mission, WSG believes commitment to the following value statements is essential.
1. To recognize and affirm the value of our patients, not just as a diagnosis or condition, but as an unique, individual human being
2. To treat all patients with compassion and understanding
3. To provide the highest quality surgical care based on advanced technology and commitment to ongoing surgical education
4. To conduct our relationships with patients and our colleagues in the healthcare team with respect, dignity, integrity, and fairness
5. To strive to communicate with the patient’s referring physicians and healthcare team in a timely and professional manner
6. To always guide our everyday decisions based upon “what is best for the patient”
In addition to the rigorous training completed by General Surgeons, the majority of Western Surgical’s Physicians have completed an additional 1-2 years of fellowship training in their respective field of interest.
