Surgery

Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s Surgeons provide expert surgical treatments for patients who have conditions ranging from hernias, appendicitis and gall bladder problems to challenging, life-threatening diseases of the colon, intestine, stomach, glands, breast and skin.

They utilize the most advanced techniques for minimally-invasive surgery including endoscopies when it is necessary to examine internal organs in depth for diagnostic purposes.

The general surgical care provided at CHH is performed safely and competently with excellent patient outcomes and it is performed in a convenient location, close to home, and close to post-surgical follow-up. CHH’s surgical associates and surgeons choose to perform laparoscopic surgery for many of the conditions that they treat. This surgical technique is commonly used for surgeries involving the gallbladder, stomach, colon and breast. For the patient, minimally-invasive surgery performed at CHH can mean less postoperative pain and therefore, less pain medication, faster healing for a quicker return home, and smaller, less noticeable scars after healing.

CHH’s surgeons know that excellent surgical care goes beyond technical expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, to concern for their patients’ well-being. That’s why they pride themselves on the relationships they develop with their patients and their families. Follow-up surgical care after surgery is very important factor in having a complete and speedy recovery. After surgical patients are discharged from the hospital, they need to be monitored to ensure that their surgery is healing without complication and that their pain is being effectively managed. CHH’s surgical associates and surgeons provide thorough post-surgical follow-up care to their patients in a location that is convenient and safe access.
