General surgery


We do a wide range of surgeries, many of which use minimally invasive procedures.

Find care


Surgery has long been a science and an art. It requires deep knowledge and technical skills, as well as the ability to connect with patients and provide personalized care. The general surgeons at The Polyclinic live up to these standards every day. 

They’ve trained at top surgical programs and continue to advance their knowledge by being part of teaching programs at area hospitals and universities. And patients often tell us how easy it is to talk with our surgeons and how cared for our surgeons make them feel. 

Conditions we care for include:

  • Hernias 
  • Digestive system diseases 
  • Breast concerns (cancerous and noncancerous)
  • Cancer (breast, stomach, colon, throat, rectum, skin and pancreas)
  • Heartburn
  • Genital warts and anal dysplasia, a precancerous condition 

Procedures include: 

  • Minimally invasive and open surgery
  • Minor procedures (including cosmetic) for noncancerous wounds, cysts and skin cancers
  • Catheter placement and removal
