Find a General Surgeon

With a skilled general surgery team, you’re in good hands. We use robotics and leading-edge technology to deliver excellent results.

General Surgery: Why Choose Us?

At Nuvance Health, you’ll find specialized services for your surgical needs, including:

  • Close-to-home care
    The general surgery team at Nuvance Health offers the latest surgical techniques to aid your treatment and speed your healing. We offer quality care, close to home.
  • Advanced procedures
    The team uses minimally invasive techniques, including robotic surgery and laparoscopy. These procedures use smaller incisions, so many patients return to full activity sooner with less scarring and pain.
  • Recognized expertise
    Our hospitals and surgeons hold a number of designations and certifications. Danbury Hospital, Putnam Hospital, Northern Dutchess Hospital and Vassar Brothers Medical Center have achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery, from the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). Danbury Hospital was the first in Connecticut to achieve this distinction. The process to accreditation requires the hospital to meet rigorous requirements.
  • Team-based approach
    In addition to partnering with your primary care physician, surgeons work closely with anesthesiologists, surgical intensivists, radiologists, nurse practitioners and nurses to support every aspect of your care.
