General Surgery

General SurgeryGeneral Surgery is the foundation of Beaumont Hospitals Surgical Services. Specialists in General Surgery are certified by the American Board of Surgery following five or more years of residency training often combined with additional research or fellowship pursuits. Dealing with a broad spectrum of illness, surgeons at Beaumont combine an in-depth understanding of diagnostic and treatment strategies, perioperative patient care, and the latest advances in surgical technique to achieve safe and successful surgical outcomes.

Our commitment to offering minimally-invasive techniques when possible allows patients to recover more quickly and return to normal activity. While General Surgery can be performed at many places, surgery at Beaumont offers the advantage of a high-volume experience, state-of-the-art technology, and a hospital-wide support structure designed to maximize patient safety.

Specialization

While many General Surgeons offer special focus on key areas of this broad discipline it is important to remember that the surgeon certified by the American Board of Surgery is a specialist in the treatment of the patient as a whole, including disorders of the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and endocrine systems. In addition, the treatment of many types of cancer and pre-cancerous conditions including those of the skin, breast, thyroid, gastrointestinal tract, and colon fall within the expertise of the General Surgeon. Although it is impractical to list the many disorders treated and procedures performed by General Surgeons, additional information can be found on the specialty pages referenced below. While the listing of surgeons with specialty fellowship training or specific clinical interest is intended to identify areas of focus, this identification is not in any way intended to exclude others who are well-qualified. Patients should always feel welcome to discuss the background, experience and training of their surgeon.
