Illnesses or injuries can often be treated with relatively simple measures such as medication, rest, changes in diet, exercise or other non-invasive therapy. But, in some cases, surgery is the only answer. General Surgeons use "minimally invasive" tools and techniques whenever possible so that you heal faster.
A few examples of procedures commonly performed by our general surgeons include:
- hernia repair
- stomach surgery
- removal of the appendix
- removal of the gall bladder
- breast surgery
- colon surgery
