Surgical Specialists is a group of 14 surgeons respected in their fields and valued by their patients. We are highly trained and we’ve helped pioneer and advance some of today’s most innovative surgical techniques and treatments.
We’re dedicated to providing a successful, comfortable and reassuring patient experience. Our training, skill and commitment make us a robust team with a variety of disciplines to uniquely meet our patients’ needs.
Our Surgery Specialties At A Glance
General surgery encompasses nearly the entire body and a wide variety of diseases—both benign and malignant. Our surgeons operate in the head and neck, breast and chest, abdomen and soft tissues. Learn more.
Our breast surgeons are highly trained specialists in the treatment of both benign and malignant conditions of the breast. They specialize in the most state of the art techniques such as image-guided breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, sentinel node mapping (to identify the extent of breast cancer disease), and new procedures to assist in targeted radiation therapy. Our surgeons are continuously training in the most advanced techniques to ensure the best outcomes for their patients. Our highly sensitive and caring physicians offer total patient care, treating patients’ physical conditions while at the same time providing them with much needed emotional support. Learn more.
Diseases of the colon and rectum often result in segmental removal of a portion of the bowel with a new connection during the operation. Some procedures can be performed in the office, at a surgery center, or in the hospital. Learn more.
Gastrointestinal surgery includes all the organs of the intra-abdominal cavity: esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon, appendix, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, and spleen. Diseases of these organs are diverse and range from benign processes and dysfunction to pre-cancerous and malignant pathology. Treatment can range from repair (hernias and obstruction) to partial or complete removal of the organ. All of the disease states can be approached using minimally invasive techniques of laparoscopy and robotic-assisted surgery. Learn more.
In its simplest form, a hernia is a weakness or defect of the abdominal wall. If the hernia contains intra-abdominal contents (intestine, stomach) or if it causes pain, repair of the hernia is advised. Depending on the nature of your hernia, our surgeons will propose the operation best-suited for you (open, laparoscopic, or robotic-assisted). Learn more.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
Our surgeons perform operations for their patients using the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Minimally invasive approaches allow you to feel like yourself sooner. Learn more.
Vascular Surgery is the surgical treatment of medical conditions associated with and related to the blood vessels or vascular system. Our vascular surgeons specialize in the utilization of the latest techniques and tools to perform the most minimally invasive surgery possible for a wide array of disorders. Vascular surgeons can often use endovascular (“within the vessel”) techniques to treat vascular conditions. Endovascular catheters are inserted through very small incisions to treat anything from a blocked vessel to a large abdominal aortic aneurysm. The same endovascular techniques can be used to treat carotid artery stenosis (narrowing of the carotid artery). These minimally invasive techniques cause much less pain for the patient and allow the patient to be discharged from the hospital more quickly. Learn more.
Plastic And Reconstructive Surgery
Plastic and reconstructive surgery involves both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. The plastic surgeon uses cosmetic surgical principles to enhance and restore overall appearance, form and function. Reconstructive procedures involve the repair, reconstruction, or replacement of defects. These can include the skin, musculoskeletal system, craniomaxillofacial structures, hand, extremities, breasts, chest and abdomen.
Special knowledge and skill in the design of grafts, flaps and free tissue transfer are sometimes called for. Reconstructive and cosmetic procedures call on the plastic surgeon’s basic medical and surgical knowledge, operative judgment, technical expertise, ethical behavior, and interpersonal skills to achieve a desirable result that is satisfactory to both the surgeon and the patient.
