General surgeons provide a variety of care. Simple procedures can be done in the office. More involved surgeries are completed in an advanced surgical suite.
If you need a hernia repair, King's Daughters' Health offers innovative solutions, including laparoscopic options that improve recovery time and reduce pain. If you have a hernia, or need to have a hernia evaluation, contact your primary care provider or call the General Surgery office. Let us take the hassle out of hernia repairs.
Skin Cancer / Skin Lesions
While many skin cancers are small in size, there is nothing small about their impact. When left undiagnosed and untreated, skin cancers can be disfiguring and even lethal - especially melanoma. The good news: when detected early (or as pre-cancerous lesions), most skins cancers can be cured and eliminated. If it has been a while since you had a skin cancer check-up, or if you notice anything new, call your provider or our General Surgery team. We can arrange for prompt removal and evaluation.
Bariatrics / Weight Loss Surgery
The Bariatric program at King's Daughters' Health is designed to improve the overall health of anyone who could benefit from weight loss surgery. Unhealthy weight is a significant risk factor for many health conditions - including heart disease and diabetes. When appropriate, bariatric surgery can help patients begin a lifelong journey toward improved health. To learn more, visit our Bariatrics page or call Dr. David Schumacher at 812.801.0840.
