colonoscopyGeneral surgeons have specialized knowledge and experience in 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
  • head and neck areas, including trauma
  • vascular system, not including the heart
  • Endocrine system, including thyroid and pancreas
  • surgical oncology, including management of cancer patients by screening surveillance, surgery, rehab, and follow-up
  • comprehensive management of trauma, including musculoskeletal, hand, and head injuries
  • complete care of critically ill patients with underlying surgical conditions

Of course, not every surgical procedure can be performed using scopes and minimally invasive techniques. Yet, when they can, the benefits are major. 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.
