Overview

Despite the name, general surgeons primarily handle procedures involving the torso — specifically, diseases of the bowel, gallbladder, stomach and other digestive organs. General surgery also includes procedures related to the breasts, as well as hernias.

  • Gallbladder removal, including laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a minimally invasive surgery option
  • Colorectal surgery (formerly known as proctology)
  • Hernia repairs (all types)
  • Appendectomy
  • Thyroidectomy/parathyroidectomy for thyroid disease treatment
  • A-port insertion for administering long-term intravenous medication
