General Surgery

Our department consists of well trained and accomplished surgeons. They have performed well over 25,000 surgical procedures during their busy careers. Last year the department completed nearly 800 operations with a complication rate much lower than predicted by national benchmarks. Outpatient surgeries consist of a wide variety including various hernia repairs, laparoscopic procedures including gall bladder, rectal/hemorrhoid intervention, multiple skin (cancers) and soft tissue resections.  They are supported in the operating suite by a very cohesive and experienced staff. In the clinic we are all energized by our effervescent nurse, Mary Wolfe. We and our staff very much look forward to providing the very best surgical care for our veterans.
