General Surgery

What is General Surgery?

Procedures related to your abdominal organs, gastrointestinal system, and trunk of your body usually fall under the category of general surgery. Common procedures such as appendix removal or gallbladder removal are handled by a general surgeon. They also perform surgeries that improve and restore functionality to the esophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas, and other vital organs located in that part of the body. Because they deal with so many interrelated organs and systems, general surgeons can often also have sub-specialty training for certain types of surgeries.

When possible, you will be provided options that are minimally invasive, for example, some cases may only require keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery. When you do require a more intensive surgery our staff will walk you through the process and ensure that you receive the proper care and treatment to get back to your regular routine as quickly as possible.
