The Division of Acute Care and Regional General Surgery delivers exceptional care to patients when and where they need it.
Our acute care surgery faculty provide expertise in burn and wound treatment, trauma, surgical critical care, surgical nutrition, and emergency general surgery across UW Health, including at our American College of Surgeons designated Level I adult and pediatric trauma centers. All of our acute care faculty are certified by the American Board of Surgery.
Our board-certified regional general surgeons provide comprehensive general surgery care close to home for our patients, including at UnityPoint Health-Meriter Hospital in Madison and SwedishAmerican Health System in Rockford, Illinois.
In addition to patient care, the Division pursues a diverse portfolio of research projects and trains the next generation of surgeons in both the general surgery residency and in a surgical critical care fellowship.
