General Surgery

Barrett Hospital & HealthCare’s General Surgery Services provides comprehensive surgical care for a broad spectrum of diseases that can occur in almost any organ or body system that might require surgical treatment ranging from benign tumors and cancers to injuries, from gastrointestinal problems to hernias. Our surgeons and care teams are here to partner with you throughout your entire journey — offering ongoing patient-centered support before, during and after surgery.  


​​At Barrett, we can, and like to, complete most surgical procedures using minimally invasive techniques. However, some conditions may require a more traditional surgical treatment approach. Whenever possible, we do our surgeries as outpatient procedures, so you can go home the same day. Depending on your diagnosis, you and your doctor will discuss which of the below surgeries are right for your condition:

  • Abdominal

  • Appendectomy

  • Breast Biopsy

  • Cancers

  • Colonoscopy 

  • Endoscopy

  • Gallbladder  

  • Hernia Repair

  • Polyp Removal

  • Rectal 

  • Trauma

High Standards for Safe Surgical Care 

Surgical site infections are a known complication of surgery. However, at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, surgical site infections are extremely rare, which is an important factor to consider when choosing where to have your surgery. From pre-operative care through recovery, your safest care is always our highest priority. Our skilled teams follow meticulous safety protocols while delivering attentive, compassionate surgical services.
