General Surgery at Southern Regional
Specialty Surgical Care to Meet Your Needs
Southern Regional provides a full range of general surgery services.
From removing an appendix or gallbladder to repairing a hernia, our general
surgeons are experienced in a wide variety of surgeries. General surgeons
work with your physician and other specialists to provide comprehensive
care for whatever your condition may be.
At Southern Regional, we're proud to offer an increasing number of
minimally-invasive and robotic surgical options. Minimally-invasive procedures
typically result in less pain, a shorter hospital and faster recovery.
Our state-of-the-art da Vinci® surgical system, which is powered by robotic technology, makes it possible
to perform complex surgery using only small incisions.Learn more about da Vinci.
As with every surgery at Southern Regional, each surgery patient is assigned a
care coordinator who walks them through every step in the surgery process, from pre-assessment
to post-operative care.
Prior to surgery, they educate each patient about what to expect of the
upcoming procedure and arrange for any
pre-surgery tests. They also provide support on the day of surgery and keep waiting family
members informed of progress.
After surgery, care coordinators help facilitate communication with the
physicians and assist with follow-up care.
