General Surgery

The sheer volume of hospitals and patients guarantee an outstanding experience in the management of the surgical patient. Whether the patient is suffering from cancer, vascular disease, an endocrine disorder, a hernia, or any other surgical disease, the surgical resident will learn the preoperative, operative, and postoperative care for the patient. Consultation of other services is performed when appropriate, not as a matter of routine. Operative management is based on graded responsibility with numerous cases available for all postgraduate levels. An increasing number of cases are performed laparoscopically as more expertise is gained with the more complex cases, such as splenectomy, adrenalectomy, and operation for gastroesophageal reflux disease. In short, due to the extensive clinical volume, the surgical resident will be able to handle virtually any patient management problem when their residency is completed.
