About Us

Lincoln Surgical was established by Dr. Jay W. Haines II in 1979, and the practice has expanded into a team of ten highly qualified surgeons.

Lincoln Surgical Associates offers a multidisciplinary approach to meeting our patients' surgical needs.

We specialize in advanced minimally invasive surgery, and we provide state-of-the-art treatment and expertise in all areas of general surgery including breast, endocrine, and colon and rectal treatment.

We recently added plastic surgery to our services to meet our reconstructive and cosmetic patients' needs.

Our multidisciplinary team of surgical specialists work together to help you receive information quickly, so you can attain a deeper understanding about your condition. Our surgeons are Fellows of the American College of Surgeons, The American Society of Breast Surgeons, and The Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons in addition to being members of Alpha Omega Alpha (the medical honor society).

We work closely with radiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists to ensure that you are receiving the best treatment possible.

Our Practice Model

We have adopted a practice model that lets us better meet your needs, and we now function as two integrated service areas: emergency/general surgeons and elective/general surgeons.

The emergency surgeons will work in the hospitals providing surgical services in the emergency rooms and inpatient floors. They will be available 24 hours a day at Memorial Hospital Belleville, Memorial Hospital East, and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. 

Our elective surgeons will have minimal call coverage, so they can focus on patients in the office. Their schedules will be more predictable, and office appointments will not have to be cancelled for hospital emergencies.

Our goal is to provide every patient with convenient appointments, swift workup and diagnosis, and quick and effective treatment.
