Surgical Services | Our Team

MidState Medical Center offers a full spectrum of general surgical procedures including surgery for the gallbladder, the colon, the appendix and hiatal hernias, as well as other surgeries for the digestive tract.

High-definition video monitors, precise instrumentation and other advanced technologies allow our surgeons to provide optimal surgical treatment. And, continuous training helps them stay abreast of the most cutting-edge techniques, such as Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site (LESS) surgery - the latest method for minimally invasive "general" surgeries of the gallbladder, colon, and appendix, as well as adjustable gastric banding.


Skilled surgeons. Amazing technology. Outstanding results.
