Expert treatment for patients who have conditions ranging from hernias and appendicitis to challenging and life-threatening diseases of the lungs, chest, abdomen, liver, stomach and intestines is available from the surgeons of CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Surgery. 

We utilize cutting-edge surgical technology in the areas of breast cancer surgery, colorectal surgery, laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, minimally invasive endocrine surgery and bariatric surgery.

When surgery is recommended, it's comforting to know that our physicians are some of the area leaders in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Patients benefit from MIS which uses smaller incisions, shortens recovery time and is less painful than traditional open surgeries.  TMFHS houses a surgical program that is a recognized leader in endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery.
