Surgery is a branch of medicine that involves treating diseases or injuries by adjusting or removing organs, tissues or bones. Surgery includes both necessary procedures, like cardiac surgery, or elective procedures, such as joint replacement.

Advanced surgical services in Independence, Missouri

At Centerpoint Medical Center, we understand there's no such thing as "routine" surgery.

That's why, in addition to providing high-quality surgical care, we work closely with patients, families and doctors to answer every question and address each concern. We also offer excellent care after surgery to help patients make fast, full recoveries.

Types of surgeries we offer

In addition to general surgery, including common gastrointestinal procedures, and the emergency procedures performed in our emergency room (ER), we provide a wide range of surgical subspecialties.

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery)

We offer bariatric surgeries to help eligible patients with weight loss. Our surgeons provide a wide range of weight loss procedures, including gastric bypass surgery and vertical sleeve gastrectomy.

Cardiovascular surgery

Our hospital has a dedicated cardiology program made up of a team of heart and vascular experts. Our experienced cardiovascular surgeons perform heart surgeries and vascular procedures to treat conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels and often use minimally invasive techniques.

Gynecologic surgery

Our Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) has a team of physicians, highly trained nurses and support staff who specialize in minimally invasive robot-assisted gynecologic surgery. Our women's care program also offers a range of noninvasive and traditional procedures.


Our neurology program has a neurosurgeon available around the clock for emergencies and trauma. Our neurosurgeon frequently conferences with other specialists and provides complete neurosurgery services for conditions, such as stroke and cerebral aneurysm.

Orthopedic surgery

Our orthopedic program is dedicated to helping patients with bone, joint and muscle pain. Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled in a variety of orthopedic surgeries, including spine, bone, joint, hip and knee surgeries.

Prostatectomies and urologic care

Our surgeons are skilled in treating different genitourinary conditions of the prostate, kidneys and bladder as well as all other urologic concerns. We specialize in prostatectomies and other urological procedures.

Spine surgery

Our spine care program is dedicated to helping patients with neck and back pain. Our spine surgeons are skilled at performing a range of treatments, including disc replacement and spinal fusion.

Robotic procedures

Until recently, patients needing surgery had to choose between traditional "open" surgery with a large incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but cannot be used for all procedures. We now offer robot-assisted surgery as an innovative option for patients. This breakthrough technology can be used for many complex procedures. Our hospital has 12 physicians who use our robot-assisted technology for a variety of minimally invasive robotic surgical procedures.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

We offer inpatient and outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation programs. Our expert physical, occupational and speech therapists create individualized treatment programs and use state-of-the-art equipment to help patients regain mobility and functionality after surgery.

We also help patients recover from certain medical conditions and surgeries through specialty rehab programs, such as our neurological care team's brain recovery rehab and our orthopedic team's bone and joint rehab.
