GENERAL SURGERY

DIVISION OVERVIEW

Surgeons within the General Surgery Division uphold a multi-faceted mission: to provide compassionate, superior patient care; to offer state-of-the-art technology for a broad spectrum of secondary and tertiary surgical procedures; to teach and mentor surgeons of the future in our resident and fellowship programs, and vigilantly translate clinical investigative findings for use in patient care.

Our surgical expertise is divided into patient management categories that include breast cancer, liver tumor, melanoma, gastrointestinal tumors, swallowing disorders, and general surgery. We have also developed a specialized focus in the field of laparoscopy, and provide expert consultation and education to the community for a variety of procedures.
