General Surgery

General Surgery

General Surgery is a discipline that requires knowledge of and familiarity with a broad spectrum of diseases that may require surgical treatment.

When an illness or injury requires an operation, your primary care provider will refer you to a surgeon. General surgeons are trained to perform a wide range of procedures affecting nearly every part of the body. They determine the need for surgery and provide care before, during and after your surgery.

Our board-certified surgeons at Midwest Surgical Specialists can perform general surgeries that include:

  • Hernia repair
  • Appendectomy
  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Colon / rectal surgery
  • Surgery for diverticulitis
  • Surgery for ulcerative colitis
  • Breast surgery to include mastectomy / lumpectomy
  • Hemorrhoid surgery
  • Trauma surgery
  • Excision of tumors, growth, cysts, lipomas and skin procedures
  • Incision and drainage of abscesses

Our general surgeons and team of highly trained professionals will work with you, your family and your primary care provider to diagnose and treat your condition customized to fit your needs.
