Talent + technology for general surgical excellence.
The Middlesex Hospital Surgical Alliance, a program of our Center for Advanced Surgery, is home to three board-certified general surgeons. General surgeons can perform a wide variety of procedures to diagnose and treat conditions of all areas of the body, and our physicians are specially-trained to do this using the latest technology - including the da Vinci® Robot-Assisted Surgical System.
While our techniques are complex, our goal is simple: to get you back to your life faster, with less pain and the best possible outcomes.
