The general surgeons at St. Mark’s hospital encounter a variety of surgical needs daily. Our skilled physicians will work with you to diagnose conditions, make recommendations and offer consultations on urgent surgical matters as well as elective surgical procedures that you may be considering.

Some of the surgical needs that we consult on and surgeries we perform most often include:

  • Hernia repair
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Appendectomy
  • Splenectomy (spleen removal)

In each instance, your physician should thoroughly discuss your condition with you as well as offer treatment options and your desired outcomes. Some treatment plans may include lifestyle changes or prescription medication while others may require surgical intervention. Regardless of the recommendation, we urge you to discuss the benefits and potential complications associated with each treatment plan with your physician.
