General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs, e.g. intestines including esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland (depending on the availability of head and neck surgery specialists)and hernias.

In addition to these procedures, general surgeons who practice at Mississippi Valley Surgery Center specialize in colon and rectal surgery, removal of masses and gallbladder surgery.

Laparoscopy:
Tiny Incisions. 
Better Surgical Options.

By making smaller incisions, surgeons avoid a multitude of complications possible with more traditional procedures. That's why most of the surgeons who practice at the Mississippi Valley Surgery Center perform laparoscopic surgical procedures.

These minimally invasive procedures include: laparoscopic hernia surgery, abdominal or groin hernia, laparoscopic colon surgery, and reflux surgery.
