Full Curriculum Vitae

A Note from Dr. Rainer

In early 2000, I recognized the need in Cortez for an outpatient surgery center facility separate from the hospital. After attending a comprehensive ambulatory surger center course, I developed the vision that was to become the Southwest Colorado Surgery Center.

Our goal is to provide an alternate surgical facility that caters to the patient and to the physician. SCSC provides an atmosphere of friendliness, comfort, and privacy.

Our facility is physician owned and available for use by other local surgeons. The Surgery Center offers affordable, state-of-the-art day surgery and I am proud of the patient satisfaction that I have seen over the years.
