A Message from the Vice Chair of Surgery, Stamford Hospital
What is General Surgery?
General surgery encompasses a broad group of surgical specialties. Here at Stamford Hospital, our general surgery procedures encompass acute care/trauma surgery, breast surgery, colon & rectal surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, hernia surgery, skin and subcutaneous lesions and surgical oncology. We utilize the latest in minimally invasive techniques including robotic surgery to minimize incision size and post-operative pain so that our patients return to full activity sooner. Our team offers expertise in all of these areas and is particularly skilled in providing you with the information you need to actively participate in your own care. Our results consistently exceed national benchmarks established by the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®), the largest resource for safety and quality in the field of general surgery.
What Makes General Surgery at Stamford Health Unique?
The general surgery team at Stamford Health uniquely combines the sophistication and resources of large academic centers with the more intimate patient and family focus found in high-quality community hospitals.
The new Stamford Hospital is an ultramodern facility, with the most high-end equipment and operating rooms along with spacious quality private rooms. The surgical team is a cohesive, highly experienced group of professionals dedicated to superior surgical care.
We offer every patient personal concierge-level guidance throughout their journey, from the initial consultation, through the hospital stay, and recovery after discharge. A member of our team will be available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to partnering with your physician, our team enjoys close working relationships with a team of accomplished anesthesiologists, cardiologists, intensive care unit physicians, radiologists, nurses, and physical therapists at the ready to assist with your care.
Most important, however, is our priority to provide you and your family with the attention and time to feel fully engaged in your care, including having a complete understanding of your disease process. Our surgical care team aims to be your partner in the healing process.
