General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs such as, intestines including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. They also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, and hernias. These surgeons deal mainly in the Torso.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions as compared to larger incisions needed in traditional surgical procedures. Trinity is proud to offer laparoscopic surgery using the DaVinci robotic surgery machine.
In vascular surgery diseases of arteries and veins are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.
Thoracic surgeons treat conditions of the lungs, chest wall, and diaphragm.
Surgery is a medical specialty engaging in operative techniques on patients, often to investigate or treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury and to help improve bodily function or appearance
