On October 1, 1999, Central Carolina Surgery, P.A. was created as an independent general surgery group as a merger between Triad Surgical Specialists and Greensboro Surgical Associates. Our primary goal was to continuously improve the care and experience of our patients. We achieved this goal by consolidating general surgery services and creating efficiencies through collaboration, subspecialization, growth, education and a positive professional culture in the region.
We have been successful in this endeavor. Central Carolina Surgery, P.A. is now recognized as one of the top-performing general surgery groups in the state of North Carolina in terms of safety and outcomes. Our surgeons are broadly trained and experienced in the art and science of surgery. We continue to recruit the best fellowship-trained surgical professionals to our practice. Through our initiatives, we have created subspecialty divisions with robust activity in general surgery, surgical oncology, hepatobiliary surgery, benign and malignant breast disease, bariatric surgery, trauma surgery, endocrine surgery, colorectal surgery, minimally invasive and robotic surgery, a dedicated inpatient acute care surgery service. Our group is also actively engaged in teaching clinical skills to other professionals.
Our practice has reached out and strengthened our corporate and cultural relationship with Cone Health, Randolph Health, and with referring providers. We now provide inpatient and outpatient surgical services in Guilford, Rockingham, Alamance and Randolph Counties. Our physicians serve in diverse leadership positions within Cone Health, aligning our professional and cultural strategy.
Continued growth and excellence in all of our activities is a fundamental part of our strategic plan. Central Carolina Surgery is well-positioned for the future and will be privileged to serve our region for many years.
