Most Common Conditions Treated By a General Surgeon
- Gallbladder Disease
- Thyroid Conditions
- Lipoma & Cyst Removal
- Breast Disorders
Certain medical conditions are more urgent and require quick treatment. Each Network campus has a highly trained Emergency Department and team of surgeons ready to evaluate and treat urgent patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Elective / Same Day Surgery
Most non-urgent general surgery is done as an outpatient. This means the patient reports to the hospital, has the surgery and goes home all in the same day. Please see our frequently asked questions about elective surgery. If you have any additional questions, please contact your surgeon.
Diagnostic testing is sometimes used to evaluate a patient’s symptoms. The most common testing includes ultrasound, CAT scan and MRI. Learn more about St. Luke’s Radiology Services.
