Renowned Chicago General Surgeons
Highly Trained General Surgery Physicians
General surgery is a broad field of surgery. As such, it requires knowledge of total body anatomy, emergency and intensive care, immunology, metabolism, nutrition, physiology, shock and resuscitation, and wound healing. General surgery specialists are trained to treat the whole patient, including making diagnoses, performing general surgery procedures, and providing pre- and post-operative care for a large variety of conditions.
Common problems treated by general surgeon doctors include hernias; gallstones and gallbladder disease; diseases of the stomach, small and large intestine; benign and malignant breast diseases; and skin and soft tissue diseases such as skin cancers, lipomas, cysts and abscesses. At the Chicago Institute of Advanced Surgery, we use our advanced training and expertise to treat all common and complex general surgery conditions.
