  • Endoscopy
    Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic medical procedure that is used to assess the interior surfaces of an organ by inserting a tube into the body. The instrument may have a rigid or flexible tube and not only provide an image for visual inspection and photography, but also enable taking biopsies and retrieval of foreign objects. Endoscopy is the vehicle for minimally invasive surgery and patients may receive conscious sedation so they do not have to be consciously aware of the discomfort.  Many endoscopic procedures are considered to be relatively painless and, at worst, associated with moderate discomfort.
  • General Surgery
    General surgery is a surgical specialty that requires knowledge of and familiarity with a broad spectrum of diseases that may require surgical treatment. Procedures frequently performed by general surgeons include, but are not limited to, abdominal organ surgery, breast surgery, colonoscopy, hernia repair and removal of the gall bladder.
