Medical/Surgical Services

Services of the Medical/Surgical Department

The Department provides a full range of patient care services ranging from cardiac (cardiac monitor unit) to neuro, surgical to hospice and pediatrics to elderly. The wide range of cases and patient ages provides for a full experience to the health care professionals who care for patients in the department - an experience one finds in a smaller hospital.

The opportunity to provide one-on-one care to patients "as people" not just as an "illness” or a "room number" gives a great deal of satisfaction to the patient and staff.

Teamwork with other departments provides for learning and growth experiences providing not only the interaction of knowledgeable professionals, but also the interaction of people to become friends as professionals.

TMH Surgeons include (l - r) Dr. Wallace B. Brucker M.D., Dr. John W. Robertson III M.D., Dr. Paul L. Liebert M.D., and Dr. Richard W. Banks D.O.

Tomah Memorial Hospital's Surgical Department works to meet the needs of the community through a progressive and holistic approach to the patient's surgical experience. The department, with a high level of patient and staff satisfaction, offers the latest in surgical techniques for the rural health care setting.

General, laparoscopic, orthopedic, gynecological, ophthalmology (cataract surgery), urology and ear-nose-throat specialties are provided for patients in the community.

Orthopedic surgery was introduced in 1999, including total joint replacement surgery. In the past, patients had to travel out of town for this service. We are proud to be able to offer this to our community.

Even though our OR volume and staff members are small in number, we are able to provide state of the art services. New laparoscopy and arthroscopy equipment utilizing digital technology are an exceptional example of this.

Newly redesigned patient care rooms provide a relaxing atmosphere for our patients. We understand the anxiety and fear of pain that surgery can produce. Our aim is to provide quality, compassionate, informed care. We offer music, soft lighting, and complementary relaxation techniques, such as Reiki, to our patients.
