You may have had a bad accident, been diagnosed with cancer, have a stomach problem, or an issue with your vascular system – all these conditions may require surgery. You and your family may be frightened and overwhelmed. You need to be assured that caring, experienced surgeons are performing the operation you need using minimally invasive techniques as determined by your doctor, and following up post operatively to address your questions and provide recovery instructions as you heal.
Talk to your primary care provider about the different surgery options available for your condition. If you do find a need for general surgery, ask for a referral to one of the general surgeons on staff at Mission Hospital.
