General Surgery

Surgery can be a scary word for many patients.  We understand the fear that comes with surgery and do our best to put you at ease.  Our general surgeons manage a broad spectrum of surgical conditions. We specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures for variety of conditions.

Common Conditions Include:

  • breast cancer
  • colon cancer / colon inflammation
  • pancreatic cancer
  • endocrinologic disease
  • gallstones
  • gastrointestinal disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD, Chronic Heartburn or Acid Reflux)
  • Hernia (Hiatal, Inguinal, Abdominal)
  • Appendicitis
  • Bowel obstruction 


Minimally Invasive Surgery

Advancements in technology have allowed for many surgical procedures to be performed with less injury to the body.  Minimally invasive surgery is typically safer than open surgery and allows for a quicker recovery with less pain. 

Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is done by creating small incisions and inserting a camera and small instruments into the body to perform the procedure.

Robotic surgery is another minimally invasive approach to surgery.  Our surgeons are specially trained in using the robotic system to assist them in performing surgical procedures.  High-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and more precise movements of tiny instruments benefit our patients with lower pain, shorter hospital stays, and a faster recovery.

Common Minimally Invasive Procedures and Services Include:

  • Anti-reflux Surgery
  • Hernia Repair
  • Appendectomy (appendix removal)
  • Gallbladder Removal
  • Pancreas Removal
  • Colon Cancer Surgery
  • Thyroid Surgery
  • Surgical Oncology
