General and Gastrointestinal Surgery
Comprehensive Care for All Patients During COVID-19
The Division of General & Gastrointestinal Surgery's dedicated physicians, nurses and staff are committed to providing the best possible specialty care—safely and effectively. We have taken unprecedented steps to ensure your in-person visits are welcoming and safe. Your health is our top priority.
At Mass General, minimally invasive surgery—also called laparoscopic surgery—is our preferred surgical approach.
Using high-definition imaging technology and precision instruments, our surgeons work through a few tiny incisions to perform thousands of these procedures each year. This high-volume experience means better outcomes for patients and helps our surgeons lead new innovations in the field.
We provide downloadable documents with patient instructions and information regarding general surgery and aftercare.
Specializing in general and gastrointestinal procedures, our highly skilled surgeons offer the latest surgical treatments.
We provide competitive and comprehensive educational opportunities including various fellowships, residencies and clerkships.
I would describe my entire care team as compassionate and caring. I can’t say enough how important they were to me in those first difficult days.
