General Surgery

Advanced Surgical Care Using the Latest Technology & Techniques

Our goal at Wabash General Hospital is to offer patients the highest-quality surgical treatment delivered with courtesy, compassion, and attention to detail to each patient’s unique needs. Our board-certified general surgeons perform a variety of procedures, from biopsy to hernia repair and colon cancer removal. They prefer minimally invasive techniques as they have been practiced for many years at our hospital and with great success. Many patients who undergo minimally invasive surgeries have an easier recovery and don’t require an overnight stay at the hospital, saving the patient time and money.


Our general surgeons are highly advanced in their field and offer minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgery. They are committed to timely evaluations and treatment and addressing patients’ needs as they arise. Many of the common general surgeries offered today do not require long incisions that they used to in years past. Thanks to technological advancements and extensive surgical training, surgery has become safer and more straightforward than ever before. At Wabash General Hospital, our general surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery with a laparoscope through only a few small incisions to gain access to the surgical site.
