Experience less pain and more gain with minimally invasive general surgery at Southwest Health. Our experienced, expert general surgeons are here to get you back to what you love to do, and their goal is to create an environment to help you get better faster with less pain, less blood loss, the smallest scars possible, quicker recovery, and less time away from home.
General surgeons have specialized knowledge and experience in the diagnosis and surgical treatment/management (before, during, and after surgery) in nine important areas:
- Digestive tract and abdomen, including the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, and gallbladder
- Breast, skin, and soft tissue, including hernias
- Endocrine system, including thyroid and parathyroid
- Surgical oncology, including management of cancer patients by screening surveillance, surgery, rehab, and follow-up
Of course, not every surgical procedure can be performed using scopes and minimally invasive techniques. Yet, the benefits are major when they can, from lighter anesthesia to less pain and faster recoveries. And at Southwest Health, you get it all with the incredible convenience of taking care of everything right here, close to home.
