This Department deals with adult medical conditions which do not involve any surgical procedures. The experienced team is dedicated to understanding and managing all aspects of adult patients' general health care. The idea of surgery can be stressful, whether you have chosen to undergo surgery or are facing an emergency procedure. Our highly trained surgeons and support staff in Tufts Medical Center’s General Surgery Division have the skills to set your mind at ease.
We are experienced in all aspects of general surgery, including surgery for hernias, gallbladder disease and disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. We also have dedicated specialists in the management of both benign and malignant disease. In many instances, you may be eligible for a minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedure that can decrease pain and speed up healing.
General surgeons care for a wide range of conditions, from cancer to obesity. General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on the complex and interrelated organs in the abdomen.
