About HCA Florida Broward Surgical Specialists

Broward Surgical Specialists is now HCA Florida Broward Surgical Specialists. Our team of healthcare providers will strive to make difficult situations better for you and your loved ones.

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.

Laparoscopic surgery

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

Anti-reflux 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.

Breast surgery

  • Duct excisions
  • Lumpectomy
  • Lymph node dissections
  • Modified radical mastectomy
  • Partial and total mastectomy

Weight loss surgery

  • Gastric bypass surgery
  • Gastric sleeve surgery

Colon surgery

We offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical procedures for different colon conditions. These conditions may include:

  • Colon cancer
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • History of harmful polyps
  • Intestinal blockages

Hernia surgery

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:

  • Adrenalectomy
  • Distal pancreatectomy
  • Hepaticojejunostomy
  • Liver resection
  • Ultrasound-guided liver ablation
