Most Common Conditions Treated By a General Surgeon


Acute Care

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

Diagnostic testing is sometimes used to evaluate a patient’s symptoms. The most common testing includes ultrasoundCAT scan and MRI. Learn more about St. Luke’s Radiology Services.
