Surgical suite

At Knoxville Hospital & Clinics (KHC), our surgical team is dedicated to providing you with the very best operative and postoperative care in a safe and comfortable healing environment.

In addition to a skilled surgeon, our surgical teams include a nurse anesthetist, registered nurses, surgical technologist, and a sterile processing technician. Our professionally trained staff are focused on patient centered care and providing the very best in quality outcomes.

The results of these efforts were acknowledged in the May 2017 Press Ganey survey, in which KHC’s Surgical Department received a 100 percent patient satisfaction score in not only one category, but all seven.

Our recently remodeled surgical and endoscopy suites are fully equipped with advanced technology for our patients to receive the best care. Pre-operative and postoperative rooms allow our patients to remain in the same room, while allowing the nursing staff to have better access to patients throughout all phases of your surgery procedure.
