general surgery

For many people, surgery is a daunting prospect. At MedStar Health, though, you can rest easy knowing your care is in the best hands—our surgical specialists share a common goal: creating a patient experience dedicated to superior quality, safety, satisfaction, and the best possible outcomes.

Over the years, advancements in medicine, modernization of equipment, and increasingly sophisticated surgical services have revolutionized care at MedStar Health's hospitals. We offer a variety of services designed to facilitate rapid recovery from surgery, and we strive to offer advanced care in a comfortable environment.

We're with you through it all

Our board-certified surgeons and experienced surgical teams use both traditional and minimally invasive approaches to treat disease or injury. Our clinicians work with patients before surgery to prepare them physically, as well as to decrease anxiety by explaining what to expect. Our surgeons and staff take time to answer patients' questions about the procedure, the expected recovery process, and the long-term outcome.

After surgery, we have a range of services designed to speed healing and get patients back to their lives. From sub-acute care to inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation, we take care of all the details so that you can stay focused on making a quick recovery.
