General surgery focuses on care of the abdomen and its contents, the thyroid gland, the skin and breasts. At CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - Alamo Heights, our team of board certified general surgeons uses the most advanced surgical specialty methods to manage and treat conditions affecting the organs and tissues of your body's torso.
Our physicians are highly skilled in using minimally invasive and robotic techniques to perform single-site procedures such as gallbladder surgery. Our laparoscopic approach can minimize abdominal scarring.
When a condition involves your esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts or the thyroid gland, a general surgeon can help you manage your treatment. Our general surgeons also biopsy soft tissues, repair hernias and treat skin and breast conditions, including cancer.
