General Surgery

Although the division is named “general surgery,” there is certainly nothing general about the skill and expertise demonstrated by the surgeons at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Our general surgeons are considered leaders in their field and pioneers in the specialty of minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery. In fact, a number of our general surgeons at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center were recently recognized as the best in the area by Philadelphia Magazine’s “Top Docs” issue.

Our surgeons’ experience and broad knowledge base enables them to provide state-of-the-art techniques through traditional surgery or minimally invasive procedures. Our team of general surgeons distinguish themselves in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous diseases and conditions, including colorectal and gastrointestinal diseases.

The general surgery team of physicians, nurses and support staff combine to provide outstanding care for surgical procedures. The superior skills and expertise of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center’s general surgeons enables them to treat a wide range of diseases and medical problems, including:

  • Breast cancer and benign breast disease
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Gallbladder disease and gall stones
  • Gastro-esophageal reflux disease and hiatal hernia
  • Disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid disorders and adrenal disorders
  • Appendicitis surgery
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Restorative procto-colectomy
  • Sphincter preservation in cases of rectal cancer
