About the Department


Welcome to the Department of Surgery on the Permian Basin Campus of the Texas Tech School of Medicine.  Together with the faculty of all departments of the School of Medicine, the department of surgery participates in the multi-specialty group practice known as Texas Tech Physicians of the Permian Basin.


Faculty in the Surgery Department provide expertise in all aspects of General Surgery, Trauma, and Critical Care.  The physician faculty functions as a small group practice to ensure excellent continuity of care.  In addition to the benefits of a small group practice, the physician faculty of the other departments within Texas Tech work together as a larger multi-specialty group practice.  This group concept assures that most of your medical needs can be met within one system.


Your quality of care is further enhanced by the continuing education efforts of our faculty.  They contribute to and have access to numerous research and educational material, advanced technology,  as well as a strong network of physicians.  With confidence,  you can trust your health to the surgeons in the Department of Surgery at Texas Tech Physicians of the Permian Basin.
