Surgical Solutions for a Range of Conditions
General surgery is a broad domain that involves diagnosing and treating a range of problems, such as hernias, gallstones, cancer, and gynecological disorders, among other issues. A general surgeon is a medical practitioner with the skills to carry out operations related to various human body systems using conventional and minimally invasive techniques. The scope of general surgery includes the skin, breasts, abdomen, peripheral vasculature, and head and neck.
Targeted Treatment for Better Health
Surgery might be necessary to repair damage to internal organs or tissues, treat complications of a disease, or prevent illness. It can also provide dramatic or complete relief from pain and other symptoms. A skilled general surgeon draws on knowledge of the bodily systems to diagnose and treat specific conditions for improved overall health and functioning.
Learn About Your Options
If you are suffering from an internal condition like a hernia, cancer, gallstone, or one of many other conditions, you may be a candidate for general surgery. Surgery can ease discomfort, prevent future pain, and cure certain medical issues. Your surgeon will assess whether surgery is the best option for treating your symptoms, carefully considering your individual needs and all the treatment options available. They will also assess your general health to make sure that surgery is a safe option for you at this time.
A Higher Standard of Surgical Care
All surgeries are performed in our beautiful Glendale surgery center, designed with your comfort in mind. We are proud to keep enough RNs on staff for a one-to-one nurse-to-patient ratio. You will be given local or general anesthesia for the duration of your surgery. Your procedure will be completed using the least invasive and most innovative methods appropriate to your condition. General surgery may involve removing, repairing, implanting, or otherwise treating internal organs or tissue for better function. Your surgical incisions will be made and closed with care to minimize visible scarring. When your surgery is complete, you will be taken to our recovery room for monitoring as you prepare for your return home.
Your Pathway Back to Health
After a brief monitoring period in our recovery room, you will be cleared to return home and rest. The recovery time for general surgery depends on the type of surgery performed as well individual factors like your age and health. For instance, a young, healthy patient who undergoes a simple surgery like an appendectomy can expect to recover within a week. However, an older patient who undergoes a more complex surgery like cancer removal may take several weeks or more to recover. During this period, it is essential to follow your surgeon's instructions for wound care, activity level, and diet. We are available to support your recovery and answer questions that come up as you heal and return to your routine.
