You may have had a bad accident, been diagnosed with cancer, have a stomach problem, or an issue with your vascular system – all these conditions could require surgery. You and your family may be frightened and overwhelmed. You need to be assured that caring, experienced surgeons are performing the operation you need using minimally invasive techniques, and following up post operatively to address your questions and provide recovery instructions to help you heal.
Don’t be misled by the term “general.” General surgeons are anything but generalists…they are highly trained and practice lifelong learning to stay ahead of the curve with new techniques and technology. We are lucky to have two general surgeons serving the needs of the Summersville region. Both are strong members of the community and pride themselves on accessible, minimally invasive treatment for every patient.
Talk to your primary care provider about the different surgery options available for your condition. If you do find a need for general surgery, ask for a referral to one of the general surgeons on staff at Summersville Regional Medical Center.

At Summersville Regional Medical Center, you’re always at the center of care. Your surgeon will provide you with a treatment plan that’s tailored to you and backed by our extensive expertise and resources.

It often is helpful to bring a family member or friend with you to your first visit as another “pair of ears” to listen to the information shared and responses to your questions by our doctors and nurses. Many patients also bring along a notebook to jot down notes that will help them recall important points in the conversation or special instructions once they have left the office.
