The Department of Surgery strives to provide the safest, most modern surgical treatments for all patients. By fostering a model of patient safety and excellence in care we are able to give our patients a personalized level of care that results in the best possible outcomes. The Department of Surgery is composed of multiple divisions, each having a section chief who is a well known and respected surgeon in their field. Under the guidance of Dr. Ahmed, Chairman of the department, we are able to offer our patients a sense of comfort that they are receiving the best possible medical and surgical care.

The Department of Surgery is made up of:

  • Bloodless Surgery  
  • Colon and Rectal Surgery
  • General Surgery  
  • Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Ophthalmology
  • Oral Maxilo-Facial Surgery
  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose & Throat)
  • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • Podiatry
  • Surgical Oncology
  • Thoracic
  • Urology
  • Vascular Surgery
  • Wound Care
The Department of Surgery is able to provide care of the whole patient, including surgical diseases of the skin, breast, hernias and gallbladder:

  • Diseases of the skin include skin infections, lipomas and cancerous lesions such as melanoma. 
  • Diseases of the breast include the non-cancerous types such as breast pain, abnormal drainage of fluid, and all forms of breast lesions including breast cancer.
  • Hernias represent a defect of the abdominal wall and usually occur either in the groin (inguinal) or at the site of a previous surgery (incisional).
  • Gallbladder disease is very prevalent in the western hemisphere due in large part to our diets. Patients with gallstones may at times experience a sharp pain; with a proper workup by a surgeon a patient may feel enormous relief after gall bladder removal.
