Having surgery is an important decision. At Kimball Health Services, we are proud to offer an outpatient surgical option close to home, with a personal touch by a trusted and skilled surgical team.
Our surgical department includes an operating room and endoscopy suite. Outpatient surgeries are performed by the providers at Kimball Health Services along with visiting specialists. Anesthesia services are provided by CRNA's (certified registered nurse anesthetists) and the department is overseen by OR Director Tom Kellner, RN.
Dr. James Broomfield, Dr. Laouel Kader and Dr. Doug Schmitz are currently doing endoscopy services (scopes) for our patients. We now have our nurse anesthetists not only providing anesthesia for our surgical patients, but also monitoring anesthesia care during colonoscopy and EGD procedures. This provides comfort and safety for our patients. Dr. Broomfield also does minor procedures such as skin lesion removals, Synvisc knee injections and vasectomies.
Currently we have one hand, plastics and reconstructive surgeon, two general surgeons, and an urologist with surgical privileges at KHS. Dr. William Wyatt, MD is a board-certified hand surgeon, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, board-certified general surgeon and is a certified wound care specialist. He joined the medical staff at Kimball Health Services in 2019. Dr. Matthew Jansen from Sidney Regional Medical Center and Dr. Doug Schmitz from Cheyenne Regional Medical Center are currently covering general surgical needs at KHS. Dr. Robert Graves covers urological needs with cystoscopy.
