Overview

Living with pain can be hard. Pain associated with abdominal issues can be nearly unbearable. That’s why Mercy Health offers surgical solutions that get you back to living a pain-free life.

Abdominal surgery treats conditions that affect your abdomen, including the stomach, small intestines, spleen, appendix and the colon (or rectum). Surgery may be needed for a variety of reasons, like infection, tumors, hernia repair or even bowel disease.

Common Surgeries We Offer

  • Appendectomy
  • Cholecystectomy
  • Colon/anorectal surgery
  • Colon/large bowel resections
  • Hernia surgery
  • Small bowel resection

Appendectomy

A surgery to remove the appendix. It’s also a common emergency surgery to treat appendicitis.

Cholecystectomy

A surgery to remove the gallbladder.

Colon / Anorectal Surgery

This procedure helps treat rectal issues like hemorrhoids.

Colon / Large Bowel Resections

This procedure removes part or all of the large intestine because of colon cancer, polyps, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, blockages or gastrointestinal bleeding.

Hernia Surgery

A hernia happens when part of a body cavity bulges out of the area where it’s usually contained. A surgical procedure can help return these bulging pieces of the intestine or abdominal tissue back to where they are supposed to be.

Small Bowel Resection

A surgery to remove part of all of your small intestine because it is blocked or diseased.
