General surgical care services

We focus on surgical methods that help improve your recovery and are associated with fewer complications. General surgeons deliver surgical treatments for conditions that affect the entire body, including:

  • Colon and rectal disease
  • Pancreas and liver disease
  • Sarcoma - soft tissue tumors

Minimally invasive surgery

Our surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery. Your surgical approach is personalized for your needs. We focus on techniques that help improve wound healing, manage pain with less medication, and help you return to your daily activities. General surgical procedures treated with a minimally invasive approach include:

  • Appendectomy
  • Breast biopsy
  • Gallbladder removal
  • Groin hernia repair
  • Thyroid surgery

The recovery process for minimally invasive surgeries may be quicker than regular surgery and typically doesn’t require an overnight stay in the hospital.
