The Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women's Surgery Center

A satellite surgical area within Tucson Medical Center’s Women’s Center, the Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women's Surgery Center, provides both inpatient and outpatient elective, and surgical services. These include tubal ligations, breast biopsies, mastectomies, hysterectomies, diagnostic as well as operative laparoscopies and simple, general and plastic surgeries.

The Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women's Surgery Center at TMC provides physicians with state-of-the art technology to perform endoscopic procedures, which use thin, flexible, lighted viewing instruments to examine inside of the body. These procedures tend to be less invasive than traditional surgeries.

Since opening in 1987, women's surgery has continuously grown and expanded its services to ensure that Southern Arizona women have access to the very best surgical practices. By centralizing the women’s surgical services into one area, TMC has a center of excellence for women’s health by providing state of the art services with a caring touch. Our patients tell us they appreciate the sense of privacy, gentle care and confidentiality they receive here.
