No one ever looks forward to the prospect of having surgery. But sometimes it’s necessary to restore your health.
If you or someone you love is about to undergo surgery, we know you’ve got a lot on your mind. Perhaps you are worried about the time it will take to return to work, hobbies and your daily routine. Maybe you’re wondering how you will manage the discomfort and inconvenience of recovery. And most likely, you’re feeling anxious about the treatment you will receive as a hospital patient.
The surgeons and staff at Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) understand your concerns. That’s why we’re pleased to offer the most advanced approach to performing surgical procedures. SMMC was the first hospital in Greater Kansas City and one of the first hospitals in the nation to offer minimally invasive surgery (MIS), an innovative approach to nearly any procedure.
By bringing technology, medical expertise and compassion together, SMMC has earned a regional and national reputation as a center of excellence for MIS. And our investment in state-of-the-art surgical robotics equipment is revolutionizing surgery.
