General Surgery at UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital
UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital (SMIH) offers general surgery services to treat conditions that require surgery on the organs of the abdomen. These include the stomach, esophagus, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, prostate, and colon.
Today general surgery is minimal and less invasive and allows our specialists to treat the both simplest pathologies (such as stones, cysts, intestinal polyps) to the most serious ones such as solid tumors. Since malignancies can degenerate into metastases, eliminating the primary tumor means minimizing the likelihood of it spreading.
At UPMC SMIH, we support patients facing surgery by offering rapid care, quick responses, and inpatient services with all necessary comforts.
