General Surgery

General surgery is the treatment of injury, deformity, and disease using operative procedures and is frequently performed to alleviate suffering when a cure is unlikely through medication alone. It can be used for routine procedures performed in a physician's office or for more complicated operations requiring a medical team in a hospital setting. Areas of the body treated by general surgery include, but is not limited to, the stomach, liver, intestines, appendix, breasts, thyroid gland, some arteries and veins and the skin. NMMC's experienced board certified surgeons offer endoscopic procedures, all surgical office procedures, major laparoscopic and open abdominal procedures, cesarean sections, as well as outpatient procedures.


Causes of Skin Cancer

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light is one of the most common causes of skin cancer, and it can lead to a deadly form of skin cancer known as melanoma.
