Gastroenterology includes colonoscopy and endoscopy.

What is a colonoscopy? A colonoscopy allows the doctor to look inside the entire large intestine. The procedure enables the physician to see things such as inflamed tissue, abnormal growths, and ulcers. It is most often used to look for early signs of cancer in the colon and rectum. It is also used to look for causes of unexplained changes in bowel habits and to evaluate symptoms like abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, and weight loss.

What is a endoscopy?
Upper endoscopy enables the physician to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine). The procedure might be used to discover the reason for swallowing difficulties, nausea, vomiting, reflux, bleeding, indigestion, abdominal pain, or chest pain.

General Surgery
General surgeons at SSC mainly focus in the abdominal area, and consists of many procedures. Here are a select few.

Hemorrhoidectomy
Hemorrhoid surgery (also called hemorrhoidectomy) is the surgical removal of hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen or enlarged veins located inside (internal) and outside (external) the anus. They are usually caused by straining when constipated or during pregnancy. The surgery can remove large internal hemorrhoids that do not respond to non-surgical treatment and large external hemorrhoids.

Hernia Repair
Hernia repair involves surgery to correct an abnormal protrusion of an organ through the wall of the area that normally holds the organ. This can happen when the outer layers of the abdominal wall weaken, bulge or rip. Most hernia repairs can be done on an outpatient basis using either the conventional open surgery or laparoscopic.

Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal
Laparoscopic gallbladder removal (also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy) is the procedure where the gallbladder is removed using instruments inserted through small incisions in the abdomen. The procedure is performed in an operating room with the patient under general anesthesia.

Lumpectomy (Partial Mastectomy)
Lumpectomy is the surgical procedure where a cancerous lump or tumor in the breast is removed. The procedure is recommended only for those patients with less than a quarter of the breast involved.

Mastectomy Total (Radical)
Mastectomy is the surgical removal of the breast for treatment of cancer. A mastectomy may involve the complete removal of the breast with or without the nipples, lymph nodes, axillary lymph nodes, or major/minor chest muscles.
