As a dedicated general surgeon, she offers general surgery, which is oftentimes considered as a mix of different surgical procedures. She performs operations which involve the gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, colon, liver, as well as other major parts of the body. She also performs minimally invasive surgeries which are typically performed using laparoscopic methods.
Patients who are dealing with disorders and issues related to abdominal contents, such as their stomach, esophagus, colon, small bowel, pancreas, liver, appendix, gallbladder and bile ducts, are referred to a general surgeon if there is a surgery required as part of treatment. These professionals are trained to offer surgical care for a patient, which usually includes making a diagnosis, and care before, during and after the operation.
