Surgical services

Having surgery is a big deal. At Iredell Memorial, we understand the emotional as well as the physical challenges each patient faces. That is why we take the time to educate you on what to expect before, during and after surgery.

Our goal is to make your surgery as comfortable as possible. Iredell offers comprehensive services for both inpatient and outpatient surgery. Our operating rooms are equipped with the latest technology, including computerized administration and monitoring of anesthesia.

Iredell's team of surgeons, specialized nurses and technicians is trained in both traditional and minimally invasive surgeries. Minimally invasive surgery offers benefits to patients from a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery to less pain and smaller scars.

After surgery, you will recover in a private room that offers all the amenities of home, including LCD televisions and wireless internet. It is all part of the exceptional care you expect from Iredell.


Our surgical floor is a consistent winner of high patient satisfaction scores. Our experienced nursing team collaborates with the rehabilitation team and physicians to provide the care and equipment necessary to assist in your recovery.

The floor was added to the Nunnery Tower in 2005 and has led the way in setting the style for renovations of that 1986 addition.

For procedures such as total hip and knee replacement, we begin working with the patient prior to surgery to help him or her prepare for recovery both at the hospital and at home.

Iredell has many advanced surgical technologies, such as:

  • da Vinci XI.
  • Digital operating suites.
  • Central sterile processing technology.
