When you’re a Sparrow patient, finding an expert surgeon is simple
As a patient in Mid-Michigan, you won’t have to travel far to find the best surgical care around. Sparrow surgeons are leaders in their fields, delivering expert care with state-of-the-art technology and tools. But what really sets Sparrow apart is our emphasis on making patients like you feel centered, valued and safe.
The most complex surgical procedures are done at E.W. Sparrow Hospital, our flagship facility. We also offer surgical services at Sparrow Clinton Hospital, Sparrow Ionia Hospital and Sparrow Carson Hospital, making it even easier for our patients across Mid-Michigan to receive the best quality care, close to home.
Advanced tech delivers a better patient experience
With Sparrow Health System’s investment in cutting-edge technology, Sparrow surgeons can draw on robotic-assisted surgical techniques for a wide range of procedures.
Robotic-assisted surgery uses “micro movements” for a more precise incision and less invasive procedure overall. For patients like you, that means less pain, less time spent in the hospital, and a faster, easier recovery.
In fact, Sparrow surgeons are such experts in deploying this advanced technology, they are frequently called upon to train other surgeons across Michigan.
Personalized support to put your mind at ease
We know that having surgery can be an anxiety-producing experience. Patients like you want to know what to expect, and how you can prepare.
Sparrow’s pre-anesthesia testing clinic gives each and every patient an opportunity for one-on-one counseling and education. We make sure you’re physically ready for your surgery, and mentally ready, too.
At the clinic, our team of professionals will talk through all your questions and concerns, and give you some educational materials to review at home — along with a goodie bag filled with a few basics to make your procedure and recovery go a little more comfortably.
Following your procedure, our emphasis on multimodal pain management techniques will help you manage your pain at home more safely and effectively.
