Dunes Surgical Hospital is the perfect option for your next surgical procedure. We offer the same care as other Sioux City surgery centers and Sioux City hospitals, but with more convenience. Many of our procedures are done the same day, allowing you to recover from the comfort of your own home.

Our state-of-the art equipment allows surgeons to perform procedures in several specialty areas. If the information below does not include a specific procedure, please inquire with your physician.

Services we cover include but are not limited to the following:

  • General Surgery – General surgery procedures address a wide variety of conditions, from cancer to obesity. For our Siouxland surgery center, that means dealing with complex and interrelated organs in the abdomen. Common general surgery procedures can be performed as minimally invasive using laparoscopic techniques, like repairing a hernia, to open, as in removing an organ like the gallbladder or appendix.
  • Spine Surgery – Spinal surgeries typically fall into a couple categories: decompression surgeries, stabilization surgeries and injections. We rank right up there with Sioux City hospitals and SD hospitals for performing this type of surgery, which can include removing a herniated disc that is causing pain, a joint fusion and an epidural steroid injection.
  • Ortho Surgery - Orthopedic (sometimes spelled orthopaedic) surgery includes procedures that deal with bones, joints and ligaments. Our surgeons can match any hospital in South Dakota for knee replacements, hip replacements and carpal tunnel release.
  • GYN Surgery –GYN surgical procedures are female-specific and help improve a woman’s general and reproductive health. Common procedures include an endometrial ablation, hysterectomy, pelvic ultrasound and tubal ligation.
  • Gastro Intestinal Surgery – Gastro Intestinal surgery is a specialty at our Sioux City surgery center. It deals with issues in the stomach, esophagus, colon, bowel and rectum and also liver and pancreas. These procedures usually are done laparoscopically and can include repairing hernias, removing the gall bladder and gastric bypass for weight loss.
  • Foot and Ankle Surgery – When mobility is limited, your life is affected. Joint and bone surgeries can restore movement and eliminate pain. Foot and ankle surgeries include ankle fractures, Achilles tendon repair, bunions, hammer toes and bone spurs.
  • Hand Surgery – Pain in the hands and wrists affect your daily life. Our Siouxland surgery center can correct arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis with hand surgery.
  • Knee Surgery – From partial to total knee replacements to minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery, we perform all types of knee surgical procedures.
  • Hip Surgery – Hip replacement surgery replaces a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint made from metal and plastic components, giving you back mobility and reducing pain. Dunes Surgical Hospital offers a relaxing environment to recover in that beats other Sioux City and South Dakota hospitals.
  • Shoulder Surgery – Decompression surgery, shoulder joint replacement, rotator cuff repair can effectively treat shoulder pain caused by degenerative arthritis. You can trust your shoulders – and hands, knees and hips – to our surgeons.
  • Urologic Surgery – Urologic surgery treats conditions in the pelvic area - the colon, urogenital, and gynecological organs - primarily for obstructions, dysfunction, malignancies, and inflammatory diseases. Our Sioux City surgery center offers convenience and care when you need a kidney stones removed, or an organ removed, like a kidney or prostate.
  • Plastic Surgery - Plastic, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgery refers to a variety of operations performed in order to repair or restore body parts to look normal, or to change a body part to look better. Common procedures include liposuction, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, face lift, tummy tuck and rhinoplasty.
