General Surgery includes a vast array of procedures. The most common of these are listed below:

  • Inguinal and Ventral Hernia Repair

Surgical Oncology is used to help patients affected by different forms of cancer. Some common forms include treatments for:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Gastrointestinal Cancers
  • Melanoma and other skin cancers
  • Colon and Rectal Cancer
  • Sentinal Lymph Node Biopsy

Laparoscopic Surgery is also called minimally-invasive surgery. It involves making small incisions in the abdomen instead of the traditional long incision down the middle. A camera is used to look inside the patient, and long instruments are placed into the abdomen to perform the surgery. It is associated with less postoperative pain and greatly reduced recovery times. All four of our doctors are skilled in basic and advanced laparoscopic procedures. Some procedures that commonly use laparoscopic surgery include:

  • Laparoscopic inguinal or ventral hernia repair
  • Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery
  • Nissen Fundoplication
  • Complex Hernia Repair including Component Separation
  • Laparoscopic Appendectomy
  • Laparoscopic colon surgery

Endocrine Surgery is surgery of the glands of the endocrine system. This includes:

  • Thyroidectomy
  • Parathyroidectomy, including minimally invasive procedures
  • Adrenal glands
