General Surgery

Rely on our experienced general surgeons for surgical procedures related to the abdomen, digestive tract, endocrine system, breast, skin and blood vessels. Some conditions that can be improved with surgery include:

Specialized Surgeries

In addition to a variety of general surgery options, trust Meritas Health for other highly specialized procedures including:

  • Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery)
  • Robotic and minimally invasive surgery
  • Trauma surgery

Laparoscopic Procedures

Your abdominal or digestive condition may be managed with a minimally invasive laparoscopic (LAP) procedure, such as:

  • Adrenal surgery
  • Appendectomy (appendix removal)
  • Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
  • Colon resection
  • Hernia repair – Hiatal, inguinal, incisional, paraesophageal and ventral
  • Nissen fundoplication (GERD treatment)
  • Small bowel resection
  • Splenectomy (spleen removal)

Minimally invasive procedures use a small incision, which shortens your recovery time so you can get back to the activities you enjoy sooner.

Comprehensive Surgical Care

Meritas Health performs surgery at North Kansas City Hospital, where you’ll benefit from advanced technology and referral services such as physical therapy and nutritional counseling, if necessary. Take advantage of the continuum of care at Meritas Health.
