Some illnesses will require surgery but not as an emergency. Some of these may be complications of other illness or surgical treatments. These illnesses include but not limited to the following:
- Chronic wounds
- Diverticulitis without perforation
- Inguinal (groin) or abdominal wall hernias
- Intestinal cancers
- Non-bleeding hemorrhoids, and many more.
If you experience any of these non-emergent illnesses, please call your primary care provider for a referral to our general surgeon. Call us today for an appointment.
