General Surgery

General surgery is a specialized surgical field focusing on procedures involving the alimentary canal, abdominal contents, and the endocrine system. It also includes surgeries related to the breast, skin, and soft tissues.

If you're dealing with a medical condition or injury that might require surgical intervention, general surgery could be the solution. At Kimball Health Services, we offer outpatient surgical procedures in our newly constructed state-of-the-art surgical department. 

General surgery involves using both minimally invasive procedures and standard surgical techniques. Minimally invasive approaches minimize pain and discomfort and help make your recovery quicker. 

Whether it's planned or unexpected, undergoing surgery can be a significant experience. Our board-certified surgeons carefully assess the need for surgery and provide comprehensive care before, during, and after the procedure.

General vs Specialized Surgery

General and specialized surgery differ in their focus and scope of practice. The distinction lies in the level of specialization and the types of procedures each surgeon is trained to perform.

General surgeons are trained to perform a broad range of surgical procedures involving various parts of the body, including the skin, abdomen, breasts, head, and neck. Specialized surgeons focus on specific areas, such as the heart (cardiology) or the brain (neurosurgery). 

General surgeons possess expertise and knowledge across a broad spectrum of illnesses and diseases, allowing them to diagnose and treat a diverse range of conditions.

Postoperative Care

Postoperative care is the care you receive after the surgery. Your health status and the surgical procedure determine the type of postoperative care you need. It lasts throughout your hospital stay or may continue after your discharge as well.

Postoperative care usually includes pain management and wound care. In specific cases, immediate concerns like airway protection and mental health are supervised.  

You are also told about the potential side effects and complications of the surgical procedure as part of postoperative care. Our care team will closely monitor and guide you towards a smooth recovery.
