General Surgery

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
  • Appendectomy
  • Colon resection
  • Small bowel obstructions
  • Biopsies
  • 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
