General Surgery

Superior Surgical Outcomes. Unmatched Patient Satisfaction.

The Deaconess Hospital Division of General Surgery offers diagnostic, therapeutic and palliative surgical intervention. Regardless of the procedure, our goals are the same - superior surgical outcomes and unmatched patient satisfaction. We consistently meet these goals by offering an experienced surgical team and advanced technology to support our surgeons.

For many procedures, we can use minimally invasive technology to minimize pain, reduce risk of infection, and facilitate faster recovery. Minimally invasive abdominal surgery is known as laparoscopy, while minimally invasive chest surgery is called thoracoscopy.
