Surgical Treatment & Procedure Specialists

General surgeons are surgical specialists who care for patients needing surgery on the abdomen, skin, breast, soft tissues, or endocrine system, which includes the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts, among other organs.

Each of our general surgeons has advanced fellowship training, including training in colon and rectal surgery, minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, surgical critical care, trauma and acute care, emergency general surgery, and bariatric surgery. We are also recognized nationally for outstanding clinical care, research, and innovation.

Our patients receive a highly specialized assessment; the newest treatments, including clinical trials for new medications; emerging surgical techniques; and coordinated follow-up of their care.
