To those who are unfamiliar with the term, general surgery sounds like a broad practice that isn’t specific to any area of the body or conditions and while general surgery covers a lot, it does have specifications. General surgery requires a surgeon to have an understanding of many conditions, including metabolic syndrome, thyroid cancer, gallstones, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, flank hernia, liver cysts and many others.
Outpatient General Surgery Procedures
Having your general surgical procedure performed in an outpatient setting doesn’t mean you give up quality. BayCare’s outpatient surgery centers offer the same skills, expertise and advanced surgical technology available in the hospital setting. A difference is you have the ability to recuperate in the comfort of your own home and outpatient surgery is lower in cost than a hospital stay. Below is a list of the most common outpatient general surgical procedures we perform on an outpatient basis at our BayCare outpatient surgical facilities:
- Abdominal fluid build-up removal (Paracentesis)
