Medical Services For Everyone
We perform a wide range of surgical procedures, regardless of age, from birth to end stages of life. Many of these procedures can be performed with a minimally invasive technique to minimize scarring and postoperative pain. Many of these minimally invasive techniques have been advanced with the addition of robotic technology available for nearly every surgery we provide.
Abdominal surgery is a broad term that covers many surgical procedures involving the abdomen. Some common abdominal surgeries are appendectomy, exploratory laparotomy, and laparoscopy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy removes the gallbladder through small incisions in the abdomen.
Colorectal surgery deals with disorders of the rectum or colon. Common colorectal conditions include diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. A colonoscopy may be necessary for colorectal surgery to determine a diagnosis. Recently the laparoscopic method has grown in popularity due to its lower risks and smaller, more precise incisions.
GSA specializes in breast biopsy, lumpectomy and mastectomy. A lumpectomy, also known as partial mastectomy is used to treat breast cancer that leaves most skin and tissue in place.
Common skin surgeries include mole removal and lipoma removal. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth. Moles and lipomas are frequently removed for a variety of reasons.
Hernias can be treated by either open surgery or minimally invasive robotic assisted surgery. During hernia surgery the weak tissue in the abdomen or groin wall is secured.
General Surgery Associates offers a wide range of cancer surgery from lumpectomy and mastectomy, to colon surgery and gastrectomy. If your doctor suggests surgery to treat you cancer, minimally invasive surgery may be right for you.
Endocrine surgery focuses on the endocrine glands, which include the thyroid glands, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, and pancreas.
General Surgery Associates uses the da Vinci Surgical System which enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions. The da Vinci system allows the surgeons hand movements to be translated into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. The surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci system at all times.
