General surgery treats a wide range of common ailments. While minimally invasive surgery benefits many patients, it is important to remember that it is not right for every patient or every procedure. Traditional surgery can be just as safe and effective as minimally invasive, for certain procedures.

  • Cancer-related Surgeries

  • Endocrine Surgery
  • Gallbladder Removal

Surgeons are typically responsible for patient care before, during, and after surgery. 

Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint replacement surgery is removing a damaged joint and putting in a new one. A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, and shoulder. The doctor may suggest a joint replacement to improve how you live. Replacing a joint can relieve pain and help you move and feel better. Hips and knees are replaced most often. Other joints that can be replaced include the shoulders, fingers, ankles, and elbows. Sometimes, the surgeon will not remove the whole joint, but will only replace or fix the damaged parts.

If nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy, and changes to your everyday routine do not relieve your pain and improve your mobility, your doctor may recommend joint replacement.

Hernia Surgery

Whether you were injured while pitching the perfect game or moving boxes in the garage, hernias are common (and can occur in anyone of any age). Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s Digestive Health offers experienced surgeons, a wide range of treatment options and personalized care designed to help you get back to your active self as soon as possible.

Our surgeons treat all types of hernias utilizing different techniques, from single-site laparoscopic and robotics to separation components for large abdominal wall reconstruction. Depending on the procedure and treatment plan determined by you and your surgeon, you could be back to work within one to two weeks.
