General surgery is the specialty that focuses on the abdominal organs as well as some skin and breast conditions. Southwestern Medical Center offers a variety of general surgery services in our Short Stay Unit or Surgery Center.
Our general surgery staff consists of expert surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and technicians all dedicated to performing successful operations and promoting comfortable healing and recovery.
Learning that surgery is needed can be frightening for individuals. Patients undergoing general surgical procedures at Southwestern Medical Center can expect to experience exceptional measures to ensure the process is as pleasant as possible.
Some of the extra steps we take to ensure your peace of mind and comfort include:
Patients scheduled for procedures are encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns with their physician, surgeon, or nursing staff. Prior to the procedure we also recommend arranging transportation upon discharge.
Please contact our Same-Day Services department and/or your physician if you are scheduled for surgery and develop a fever, persistent cough, rash or cold. Your procedure may need to be cancelled or rescheduled, but it is for your own safety.
