General & Trauma Surgery Services

The word “general” can be confusing because although this specialty is referred to as General Surgery, these physicians are highly trained and skilled individuals who can surgically treat a number of conditions. Most typically, general surgeons treat conditions related to the abdomen, digestive tract, endocrine system, breast, skin, and blood vessels. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the most common problems treated by general surgeons include, “hernias, breast tumors, gallstones, appendicitis, pancreatitis, bowel obstructions, colon inflammation, and colon cancer.”

Meritas Health offers board certified General and Trauma Surgeons that provide surgical and evaluative treatment. Your primary care provider may refer you to a General Surgeon or you can use our Find a Doctor tool to locate one for yourself.
