Surgical Services to Serve You:

General Surgery

General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs, e.g. intestines including esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland and hernias.

Areas of special interest include GI oncology, inflammatory bowel disease, liver tumors, complex pancreatic or biliary disorders, reoperative GI surgery, functional GI problems and proctology.

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are performed at Trinity, which significantly reduce the amount of time spent in the hospital and promotes quicker recovery.
  • laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallstones
  • laparoscopic gastric and bowel resection
  • laparoscopic fundoplication for reflux and diagnostic laparoscopy

Vascular Surgery - Treatment of Vessels Outside the Heart

Vascular Surgery includes treatment of all vessels outside the heart and is dedicated to the care of patients with disorders of the circulatory system.

In the past decade, there have been numerous diagnostic and surgical technological advances such as: ultrasound enhancement, angioplasty, stenting devices and improved imaging techniques.
Vascular surgery is commonly used for patients with peripheral vascular and venous diseases, aneurysms, strokes and carotid disease.

Urology - Bladder and Urination Surgery

Urologic surgery is performed by surgeons who specialize in the treatment of urologic conditions. Urologic surgery is the integration of surgical activities for the pelvis primarily for the treatment of obstructions, dysfunction, malignancies, and inflammatory diseases. Common procedures performed at Trinity range from cystoscopy to transurethral prostate surgery.

Podiatry - Foot and Ankle Surgery

Procedures range from reconstructive foot and ankle surgery for both adult and pediatric patients, to foot and ankle trauma. Trinity has 24/7 call coverage for patients needing podiatry services.

Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)

Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors or Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck.

Special skills include diagnosing and managing diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face. Otolaryngologists diagnose, treat, and manage specialty-specific disorders as well as many primary care problems in both children and adults.

ENT surgeons also perform a specialized procedure, called Balloon Sinuplasty. If you suffer from sinus pain and pressure and have not found a treatment that works, you may be a candidate for this less invasive sinus surgery. Sinuplasty is proven to be safe and effective with a much shorter recovery time than traditional sinus surgery. This technique will relieve chronic sinusitis and recurring sinus infections.

Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB/GYN)

Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) are two surgical specialties that treat conditions that affect women of all ages - young women, women of childbearing age and post-menopausal women. Throughout a women's life, she is likely to visit a gynecologist more often than any other physician. Our OB/GYN physicians are committed to providing comprehensive healthcare services for both pregnant and non-pregnant patients.

Ophthalmology - Surgery of the Eyes

Ophthalmology (Eye) is the branch of medicine which deals with the diseases and surgery of the visual pathways, including the eye, brain, and areas surrounding the eye, such as the lacrimal system and eyelids. Ophthalmologists are surgically trained specialists who operate primarily on the eye, offering the removal of cataracts.

Reconstructive and Cosmetic Procedures

Plastic surgery is a special type of surgery that can involve both a person's appearance and ability to function. Plastic surgeons strive to improve patients' appearance and self-image through both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.

Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive procedures correct defects on the face or body. These include physical birth defects like ear deformities, traumatic injuries like those from dog bites or burns, or the aftermath of disease treatments like rebuilding a woman's breast after surgery for breast cancer.

Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic (also called aesthetic) procedures alter a part of the body that the person is not satisfied with. Common cosmetic procedures include making the breasts larger (augmentation mammoplasty) or smaller (reduction mammoplasty), reshaping the nose (rhinoplasty), and removing pockets of fat from specific spots on the body (liposuction).

Reconstructive and cosmetic procedures offered:
  • breast reconstruction and augmentation
  • facial rejuvenation (Botox, face lifts, and fillers)
  • body contouring (liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift and body lift)
  • hand surgery (carpal tunnel, trigger fingers and traumatic injuries)
  • nose surgery
  • eyelid surgery
  • scar revision
  • facial and burn reconstruction
  • skin evaluations and cancer treatments
  • ear surgery
