And if you do need to spend time in a hospital, isn't it nice to know you and your family won't have to travel far for quality care?Our general surgeons have experience in many facets of surgery from tumor removal and hernia repair to gallbladder surgery and emergency surgery. They specialize in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical techniques that may result in less pain, minimal scarring, and faster recoveries. They also perform colonoscopies and other endoscopies.
