Over the past 25 years, our experienced General Surgery team has performed thousands of procedures at some of Boston's finest teaching hospitals. Today, we have recruited highly-regarded surgeons and are able to provide state-of-the-art care in our new operating rooms. The department has grown significantly adding new surgeons who bring specialized care to our communities. Three of the new initiatives include a new minimally invasive surgery program, hepatobiliary and pancreatic program, and multidisciplinary breast center. All of our general surgeons handle routine cases as well as more complex procedures. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive techniques to reduce the discomfort and recovery time of surgery. Many procedures can now be done on an outpatient basis with patients going home the same day.
