Advanced surgical techniques for children and adults
Doctors who specialize in surgical procedures are called general surgeons. Our highly trained general surgeons can perform inpatient and outpatient procedures on an elective, urgent or emergency basis. We offer surgical consults at these locations, as well as in Grand Marais.
Our Team and Services
Our team of surgeons are trained to operate on numerous areas of the body, including:
- Endocrine system
- Esophagus and related organs (also known as the alimentary tract)
- Head and neck
- Soft tissue
Common conditions treated and managed include:
- Hemorrhoid care
- Breast disease, including tumor and cancer surgery, as well as mastectomies
- Intestinal problems
- Colon resection
- Gallbladder issues
Minimally Invasive Surgeries
Many of the surgeries our general surgeons perform are advanced laparoscopic surgeries, also known as minimally invasive surgeries. They involve small incisions and reduce the risk of infections. Minimally invasive surgeries put less strain on the body and allow patients to recover faster.
Our general surgeons also use the da Vinci ® Surgical System for robotic assisted surgery, which takes minimally invasive surgery to the next level. Your surgeon will talk with you about what surgical options are best for you.
In addition to our general surgeons, we have several other surgical specialists at St. Luke’s.
St. Luke’s does not require a referral for this service. To see if
your insurance company requires one, call the number on your card.
Surgucal consults are available at these locations.
