General Surgery

General Surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses primarily on disorders of the abdominal wall and its contents including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts. Our surgeons are all board-certified and have many years of experience managing and treating disorders in these organs.

Although the list of surgical procedures that general surgeons perform is vast, some examples include:

  • Colectomy for diverticular disease (diverticulitis)
  • Gallbladder removal for acute cholecystitis (pain due to gallstones)
  • Spleen removal for hematologic disorders
  • Adrenalectomy for hormonal issues or cancers
  • Hernia repairs for abdominal or groin defects
  • Removal of cysts or lipomas anywhere on the body
