Surgery

General Surgery

Highly skilled board-certified surgeons at Greenwich Hospital are experienced in a wide range of general surgery procedures including abdominal surgery, bariatric/gastric bypass, cancer surgery, cryotherapy, laparoscopic appendectomy, cholecystectomy, hernia repair, thyroid surgery and vascular repair.

Greenwich Hospital surgeons employ the most advanced surgical procedures to perform minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgeries. These benefit the patient by improving outcomes and accelerating healing. Some techniques include the da Vinci robotic assisted surgery.

Anesthesia
Board-certified physicians trained in the specialty of anesthesiology administer anesthesia and monitor patients under anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures.

Patients are given either local or general anesthesia, depending on the surgical procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb a site where pain is likely to occur without changing the patient's awareness. General anesthesia renders patients unconscious and unaware during medical procedures, so they do not feel or remember anything that happens.

Areas of anesthesia expertise include:
  • Cardiovascular anesthesia
  • Critical care
  • Neurosurgical anesthesia
  • Obstetrical anesthesia
  • Pain management
  • Pediatric anesthesia
  • Trauma management
  • Specialized joint replacement anesthesia
