General Surgery in New Jersey

Generally speaking, having surgery for any reason is a secondary choice for treating any condition.  

Assuming you’ve consulted with a Primary Care Provider about alternative treatment options, and they’ve deemed surgery as the best course of action to treat your condition, Care Station Medical Group is available to assist with the following surgical procedures.

Lymphadenectomy (Lymph Node Dissection) – a procedure to remove one or more lymph nodes.  These are generally removed for the screening of cancer cells.

Gallbladder or Gallstone removal – In most cases gallstones do not require surgical intervention, but sometimes prompt treatment is necessary in the event of infection or inflammation of the pancreas. 

Depending on your unique situation, either a laparoscopic “keyhole” surgery can be performed.  Or, if the entire gallbladder needs to be removed it will require a laparotomy procedure to allow for a wider incision.

Hernia Surgery – A hernia is the protrusion of an organ through the muscle that typically contains it.  It most frequently occurs in the abdominal wall.

Thyroid Lobectomy – The thyroid consists of two lobes that sit on either side of the trachea, and are joined together by a small piece of tissue called the isthmus.  A thyroid lobectomy removes one lobe and the isthmus. In the event of cancer being present, the entire thyroid may be removed.

Other conditions that may require surgery include nonhealing wounds, biopsies, and removal of cysts.
