General & breast surgery

Our Optum General Surgery department is staffed with highly skilled physicians who provide comprehensive surgical care for patients and their families.  Our general surgeons diagnose and provide care for surgical conditions affecting almost any area of the body, including thyroid, neck, breast, abdomen, and chest, as well as internal systems, such as the gastrointestinal and endocrine systems.  We also offer weight loss surgery through our Bariatric program.  We work closely with other members of the multi-specialty Optum group, and other community physicians, to ensure the best treatment program for each patient.  Our physicians are all Board Certified in General Surgery.
