About our general surgery services
Staffed by our experienced and highly specialized general surgeons, we offer minimally invasive, robot-assisted and traditional surgical treatment for a variety of conditions. Our team is also able to treat minor conditions as well.
During laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon only makes a small incision, which means faster recovery and fewer complications. Laparoscopic procedures include:
- Anti-reflux surgery
- Bariatric (weight loss) surgery
- Colon surgery
- Gallbladder surgery
- Hernia surgery
- Intestinal surgery
- Liver and pancreas surgery
Acid reflux can cause heartburn, chest pain, ulcers and in advanced cases, esophageal cancer. Contributing factors to acid reflux include hiatal hernia, obesity, pregnancy, smoking and drinking alcohol.
If conservative treatment no longer offers relief, or if you have been taking medicine for a long time, then surgical treatment may be an option.
- Duct excisions
- Lymph node dissections
- Modified radical mastectomy
- Partial and total mastectomy
Weight loss surgery
- Gastric bypass surgery
- Gastric sleeve surgery
We offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical procedures for different colon conditions. These conditions may include:
- Colon cancer
- Crohn's disease
- History of harmful polyps

A hernia occurs when the muscle wall becomes weak and the intestines or other tissue push through the muscles. Types of hernias we treat include inguinal, umbilical, incisional, ventral and hiatal. Hernia surgery can be done through minimally invasive or through traditional open surgery.
Liver and pancreas surgery
Our practice has the expertise to treat a broad spectrum of conditions of the liver, pancreas and bile ducts. Procedures we perform include:
