General Surgery

Surgery is usually planned, involving a clinic visit with your general surgeon to evaluate your condition, determine if surgery is needed and decide what procedure is the most appropriate.

If you need a minor procedure, it is most appropriate to perform it in a clinical setting. Your doctor will decide this during your clinic evaluation.
