Ochsner's Section on General Surgery performs a wide variety of surgical treatments for conditions such as cancer, hernias, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and thyroid problems. We specialize in minimally invasive procedures, such as laparoscopic gall bladder removals, that make operations less painful and recovery times shorter. Working under the proven philosophy that a surgeon who performs a procedure more frequently will become better at it with experience, Ochsner's general surgeons are encouraged to specialize in specific procedures.

Whether the procedure required is a thyroid operation, stomach procedure or advanced laparoscopic procedure, you can be sure that your Ochsner surgeon has had the opportunity to develop a great deal of experience with it.
