The Carolinas Center for Surgery's general surgery department provides services concerning all aspects of surgical care with emphasis on gastrointestinal surgery, gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery, and breast care. The department maintains a working relationship with general surgical sub-specialists at many teaching hospitals for consultation concerning complex general surgical problems. Most major surgeries are performed at Carteret General Hospital; however, for outpatient endoscopy, routine hernia repair, and routine breast care, Surgical Center of Morehead City provides a pleasant outpatient surgical experience.
Services provided include thyroid and parathyroid surgery, esophageal surgery, treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (severe indigestion), gallbladder surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, pancreatic surgery, treatment of complicated diverticulosis, treatment of colorectal cancer, common skin cancers, soft tissue cancers, abdominal and inguinal hernia surgery, and treatment of benign and malignant breast conditions.
Among the vascular surgery services provided are treatment of carotid arterial disease, abdominal and peripheral aneurysmal disease, peripheral arterial disease, peripheral venous insufficiency, and aortoiliac arterial disease.
If any of the above problems sound familiar to you, call for a consultation or get a referral from your primary care physician for evaluation and treatment.
