Frequently Asked Questions Related to General Surgery

General surgeons perform surgeries targeting a diverse range of prevalent ailments such as hernias, disease, appendicitis, breast tumors, thyroid disorders, ailments of the colon, diverticulitis, and gallbladder, and at times conditions affecting the endocrine system, breast, skin, and soft tissues.

General surgeons offer comprehensive care throughout the entirety of the surgical journey, starting from the initial evaluation and diagnostic examinations, through surgical preparations and actual procedures, all the way to the management of postoperative care.

Lee Healthr surgeons are specially trained to offer minimally invasive surgical options using laparoschopic or robotic-assisted surgical approaches that improve recovery, reduce risk of bleeding, and generally offer an improvement of quality of life.

Laparoscopy is a special type of surgery that is less invasive and can be used to both diagnose and treat problems in the abdominal and pelvic areas. By using laparoscopy, surgeons can achieve precise visualization and intervention while minimizing the invasiveness of the procedure. 

In general surgery, robotic systems can be used for various purposes, such as performing minimally invasive surgeries, removing tumors, repairing organs, and other surgical procedures. Not all general surgeons are trained in robotic surgery, and surgeons who perform robotic surgeries undergo special, additional training.
