  • 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.
  • Vascular Surgery
    Vascular surgery is a specialty that offers both surgical and minimally invasive treatment of problems associated with the blood vessels in the body. Vascular disease may include any condition that disrupts the effectiveness of the circulatory system.
  • Wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy
    Providers trained in these therapies may use different treatment options for problem wounds that won’t heal. These providers also treat the underlying causes for these wounds. Wound treatments include deep-tissue removal and advanced skin substitutes, as well as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which is the use of 100-percent oxygen breathed at high pressure while inside a chamber. This high level of oxygen stimulates quicker healing as it promotes new tissue growth.
