General Surgery

Our general surgeons specialize in diagnosing and managing a full range of complex diseases throughout the entire body. When surgical treatment is necessary, our doctors perform a wide spectrum of traditional surgical, minimally invasive and laparoscopic procedures as well as endoscopies and colonoscopies. Surgical services include diseases of the skin, gall bladder, thyroid, colon, intestine and abdominal wall such as hernia repair, hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease. In addition, we treat most types of cancer including skin, stomach and lung.

For additional information on conditions affecting the upper GI system, including acid reflux and GERD, visit our Acid Reflux, GERD, Upper GI Surgery page.
