General Surgery

Patients who wish to have their surgery performed at HCGH now have a wider range of choices.

There are a variety of abdominal surgical procedures that can be performed at HCGH, treating the following diseases and conditions:

  • Hernias
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Appendicitis
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Thyroid Disease
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Abscesses and Masses
  • Colorectal Cancer and Screening
  • Diseases of the Lower Digestive Tract

Minimally invasive surgery can also be performed, which can mean smaller incisions, less pain and a quicker recovery for patients. Our surgeons can help you determine whether surgery is right for you and if so, which type of procedure.

Other areas of surgical specialties include:

gynecological surgery
orthopedic surgery
vascular surgery
