General Surgery

When an illness or injury requires an operation, your primary care doctor will refer you to a general surgeon. Our surgeons are trained to perform a wide range of procedures affecting nearly every part of the body. They determine the need for surgery and provide care before, during and after your procedure.

Our general surgeons at Mercy Health use minimally invasive tools and techniques whenever possible to reduce pain and discomfort and promote faster healing.

All of our surgeons handle routine cases as well as more complex procedures. For your convenience,surgery services are available in numerous locations across Greater Cincinnati.
