THE ABDOMEN - General surgeons do a wide variety of abdominal procedures. We have the unique ability to treat many different problems and diseases.
HEMORRHOIDS AND ANAL DISEASE - While embarrassing hemorrhoids are a very common problem, issues can range from the acute pain of a Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid, to the chronic bleeding from Internal Hemorrhoids. We employ the newest and least painful approach for surgical hemorrhoid problems using a stapling technique (PPH Hemorrhoidectomy). Many times anorectal pain is not from hemorroids but other pathology like Anal Fissures, Anal Fistulas, or Perirectal Abcesses .We are happy to evaluate and treat all of your potential anorectal problems.
TRANSORAL INCISIONLESS FUNDOPLICATION - If you have chronic acid reflux, we offer an innovative surgical solution - the Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) - that allows us to effectively treat the root cause of GERD. The TIF procedure is done through the patient's mouth and from within the stomach under full visualization with an endoscope. This procedure is an incisionless solution to have no more reflux, no incisions, and no more PPIs!
VENOUS DISEASE - At the North Alabama Vein Center, we treat all forms of venous disease from the tiny "Spider Veins" to the large painful "Varicose Veins". We perform "Laser" surgery and Endovascular Laser Ablation (EVLT) in our office.
ENDOCRINE - Operations on the Thyroid and Parathyroid glands are common General Surgical procedures. We provide many endocrine treatments and with our "in office ultrasound" we are able to treat patients here and often avoid surgery.
We are also fully trained in the latest THORACIC and GYNECOLOGICAL procedures.
