Sometimes you can carefully plan for your surgery; other times you have a health crisis that lands you in the emergency room. No matter what type of surgery you face, you're in good hands at Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on breast, endocrine, and abdominal organs such as the stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and intestines. General surgeons are trained in a broad spectrum of diseases and care for a wide range of health needs. Local general surgeons attend to most situations; if you require more specialized surgery, we will connect you with another PAMF surgeon. We are dedicated to providing the highest levels of safety and quality, in a compassionate, patient-centered and respectful environment.
Surgeons at PAMF use the latest in advanced technology, such as video-assisted surgery, endoscopy and robotic surgery, to aid in early diagnosis and faster recovery.
