General Surgery


Surgeons at St. Mary’s Physician Associates specialize in the comprehensive care of surgical patients. They collaborate with a variety of other specialists to provide you with the care you need. Our surgeons also perform robotic surgery at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center. Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform complex procedures through smaller incisions than standard surgery. Robotic surgery often results in less pain, scarring, trauma and blood loss than other surgical procedures, which can lead to a quicker recovery for the patient.

Our surgical expertise includes the management of the most common ailments, including:

  • Treatment of simple and complex hernias
  • Treatment of gastrointestinal problems, such as peptic ulcer disease, colon cancer, anorectal disorders, hemorrhoids, and inflammatory bowel disease
  • Diseases of the gallbladder, pancreas and liver
  • Endocrine problems
  • Swallowing disorders

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery is right for you.
