General Surgery

general-surgery.jpgGeneral surgery focuses on surgical procedures performed in the abdomen, including the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, appendix and thyroid. General surgery also deals with diseases involving the skin, breast, soft tissue, trauma, and hernias.

Our general surgeons can perform many procedures laparoscopically or robotically. Some of the most common general surgery procedures include:

  • Appendectomy to remove the appendix
  • Breast Biopsy
  • Cholecystectomy to remove the gallbladder
  • Hemorrhoidectomy to remove hemmorrhoids
  • Hernia repairs
  • Mastectomy to remove all or part of the breast

Flandreau father-of-two Matthew Knippling talks about his son’s emergency appendectomy at Brookings Health System.
