General Surgery is a specialty that focuses on the abdomen and its contents including breast, skin, soft tissue, head and neck, vascular systems and endocrine systems. We strive to use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. Through the use of advanced surgical procedures, our doctors have greater control and vision during surgery, allowing them to perform safer, less invasive, and precise surgical procedures. For the patient this means smaller or fewer incisions, less pain, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, less scarring, and a quicker recovery time.

Advanced Treatment Options
Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that allows a surgeon to operate through a few tiny incisions, sometimes as small as a few millimeters. They are able to view the inside of a patient using a microscopic camera that is placed in the body through a thin flexible tube called a laparoscope.
Robotic surgery is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Our surgeons control the system, which translates their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the tiny surgical instruments.
