General Surgery

At times keeping an active healthy lifestyle may lead to the need for surgery.

Thanks to minimally invasive procedures that substantially reduce disturbance to surrounding tissues, recovery times are getting shorter. Many surgical procedures are performed on an outpatient basis; Patients are treated in a few hours and sent home to recuperate with virtually no visible scarring.  This technique offers less pain and discomfort for our patients. 

Our General Surgeons diagnose and provide care for surgical conditions affecting almost any area of the body. Common surgical procedures we perform include the following areas of the body; breast, lung, abdomen, thyroid, arm, legs, colon, rectal and skin.

Our surgeons partner with Exeter Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care to offer Intraoperative Radiation Treatment (IORT), a one-time radiation treatment done at the time of a lumpectomy for early stage breast cancer patients. 

We work closely with other specialties such as Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, Vascular Surgery and Anesthesiology to ensure the best possible outcome to your procedure. We are also co-located with Core Gastroenterology as an added convenience for patients who need colon or other gastrointestinal operations.
