Surgeons with the Brookwood Baptist Health Primary & Specialty Care Network perform a wide range of procedures to treat a variety of health problems. Many surgeries are performed with minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
Unlike open surgery, which requires a long incision, minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more short incisions. For most patients, this leads to less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and, in some cases, a better overall outcome.
Our general surgeons perform a variety of procedures, including (but not limited to):
- Hernia repair
- Gallbladder surgery
- Colon resection
- Small bowel obstructions
- Skin and soft tissue removals including melanoma
- Weight loss surgery
The Brookwood Baptist Health Primary & Specialty Care Network also has specialists who can perform a number of other types of surgery.
- Cardiothoracic surgery
- Colon/rectal surgery
- Gynecological surgery
- Urology surgery
