General Surgery

What is General Surgery?

A General Surgeon is a specialist who is trained in surgical practice. Complex surgeries are performed mostly in a hospital, or a specialized care centre. Many minor surgeries can be performed in the community with very little risk.

What can be treated at Appletree?

At Appletree Medical Group in Ottawa, our general surgeons perform minor surgeries as well as diagnose conditions that will need surgical care in the hospital. Minor surgeries include the removal of lumps and bumps, cysts, moles, as well as procedures that are breast tissue specific. Also treated in our centres are hemorrhoids, and other anorectal conditions.
