The general surgery department provides all aspects of care for
general surgical diseases.
General surgeons perform traditional open surgery as well as
advanced, minimally invasive procedures. Examples of minimally
invasive surgical procedures include: laparoscopic cholecystectomy
for gallbladder removal; laparoscopic hernia repair; and
laparoscopic colectomy to treat colon cancer or diverticulitis by
removing a portion of the colon.
Specialists in the general surgery department care for people
with diagnoses including: esophageal disease; heartburn; stomach
disease, including cancer; gallbladder disease; pancreatic and
hepatobiliary disease; pancreatic cancer (requiring the Whipple
procedure); small intestine and colon disease, including cancer;
soft tissue tumors, including sarcoma; melanoma; and thyroid,
parathyroid and adrenal conditions.
