A general surgeon manages a broad spectrum of surgical conditions affecting almost any area of the body. The surgeon establishes the diagnosis and provides the preoperative, operative, and post-operative care to surgical patients. Additionally, the surgeon is usually responsible for the comprehensive management of the trauma victim and the critically ill surgical patient.
The surgeon uses a variety of diagnostic techniques for observing internal structures and may use specialized instruments during operative procedures. A general surgeon is expected to be familiar with the features of other surgical specialties in order to recognize problems in those areas and to know when to refer a patient to another specialist.
With two convenient locations to choose from, we have the surgical care that you need, close to home.
