The word “General” in the title “General Surgeon” has become somewhat of a misnomer in this era of specialized medicine. At Shore Physicians Group, our practice of General Surgery encompasses the following:
The alimentary tract (Esophagus, Stomach, Small and Large Bowel and Rectum)
The abdomen and its contents, including the pelvis
The skin, soft tissue and musculoskeletal system
The head and neck
The endocrine system
Critically ill patients

Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally Invasive Procedures
At Shore Physicians Group, we offer minimally invasive procedures for operations such as laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and laparoscopic ventral/incisional hernia repair. Many other procedures are also performed with a minimally invasive approach such as stereotactic and ultrasound guided breast biopsy. All of these procedures are superior in that there is less pain, less scarring and a much quicker recovery.
Vascular surgeons are specialists who are highly trained to treat diseases of the vascular system. Your blood vessels -- arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood and veins carrying blood back to the heart -- are the roadways of your circulatory system. Without smoothly flowing blood, your body cannot function. Conditions such as hardening of the arteries can create “traffic jams” in your circulatory system, obstructing the flow of blood to any part of the body.
A vascular surgeon does far more than surgery. A vascular surgeon makes sure patients with vascular health issues know and understand all their options. In short, vascular surgeons can do surgery, but they see and treat many patients who don’t require surgery. Vascular surgeons will talk to you about how exercise, diet and medication can be the first steps in regaining your health.
The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) accredits imaging facilities and hospitals specific to vascular testing. IAC accreditation is a means by which facilities can evaluate and demonstrate the level of patient care they provide.
