General Surgery Services NARMC

The general surgeons at NARMC are medical professionals who specialize in performing surgical procedures across a broad range of medical conditions. Their expertise encompasses a variety of surgical interventions, both elective and emergency, often involving the abdomen, digestive tract, soft tissues, and other areas. 

The services of our surgery department include:

Consultation and Evaluation: At your initial appointment, the surgeon will evaluate your medical conditions. They assess your need for surgery and discuss the potential risks and benefits with you.

Preoperative Care: Before surgery, your surgeon will coordinate with other healthcare professionals to ensure that you are adequately prepared. This may involve conducting preoperative tests, prescribing medications, and providing instructions for you to follow before the surgery.

Surgical Procedures: NARMC’s general surgeons perform a wide range of surgical procedures. Common types of surgeries include appendectomy (removal of the appendix), cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), hernia repair, bowel surgeries, and procedures related to the thyroid.

Emergency Surgeries: Our general and specialty surgeons are often involved in emergency situations, such as trauma cases, abdominal emergencies, and acute conditions requiring immediate surgical intervention.

Endoscopy: Our team of general surgeons are trained in endoscopic procedures, allowing them to visualize and treat conditions within the gastrointestinal tract using minimally invasive techniques.

Trauma Surgery: NARMC’s General surgeons play a crucial role in trauma care, particularly in emergency departments or trauma centers. They may be involved in treating injuries caused by accidents, falls, or violence.

Postoperative Care: After surgery, our team of surgeons monitor patients during the recovery phase, ensuring that they are healing properly. They prescribe medications, provide postoperative instructions, and arrange for follow-up appointments.

Collaboration with Other Specialists: Our surgeons collaborate with other medical specialists, such as anesthesiologists, radiologists, and oncologists, to provide comprehensive care for patients with complex medical conditions.

Laparoscopic Surgery: The surgeons at NARMC are skilled in laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery techniques. These procedures involve smaller incisions, leading to quicker recovery times and reduced scarring compared to traditional open surgery.
