General Surgery

When you’re in need of a surgical procedure, you logically want a combination of expertise and advanced surgical technologies and techniques.

At Jackson Surgical Associates, our board-certified surgeons do a variety of general surgery procedures, including treating gallbladder disease, hemorrhoids, colon problems, and peripheral vascular problems; repairing hernias; placing ports for dialysis; and treating breast disease. Our physicians can also perform your general surgery at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.

Leaders in Innovative General Surgery

We have introduced several general surgical procedures to the Jackson community. These include:

  • Lumpectomies for removing breast cancer
  • Minimally invasive laparoscopic cholecystectomies to remove gallbladders
  • Laparoscopic hernia and appendectomy surgery
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopy for performing certain lung procedures
  • Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication to treat gastroesophageal reflux diseases
  • Thoracic aortic stent grafting for thoracic aneurysms

We also evaluate breast lesions through the use of stereotactic non-invasive breast biopsy, and we are on the leading edge of technology by offering sentinel lymph node biopsies. These minimally invasive procedures result in easier and often faster recovery for patients.

General surgery is performed at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, with some procedures done in the clinic.
