General Surgery

Gallbladder removal and hernia repairs are some of the most common general surgical procedures. Removal of the gallbladder is a treatment option for various conditions, like gallstones, gallbladder inflammation or infection, and gall bladder cancer.

Our team is skilled at performing robotic-assisted surgery for various types of hernias. A hernia occurs when an organ or other structure protrudes through a weak area in the tissue or muscle. They can bulge into the chest, thigh, groin, or belly button and cause a visible lump. During a hernia repair, surgeons put the protruding organ back in place, then fix the weakened area of muscle or tissue.

  • Inguinal hernia - part of the intestine or fat bulges through the lower stomach wall. They usually occur on the right side and are much more common in men.
  • Umbilical hernia - part of the intestine bulges through the opening in the abdominal muscles near the belly button
  • Ventral hernia - any hernia type that occurs along the midline of the stomach
