General Surgery

General Surgery

At Florida Hospital East Orlando, we’re committed to offering our patients not just a wide array of surgical services in the compassionate, patient-centered atmosphere that has made us a hallmark of health care in Central Florida, but also the latest, most cutting-edge technologies available for these procedures. Our team is comprised of dedicated, highly skilled surgeons, nurses and technicians who work together to deliver exceptional, specialized care. We perform both inpatient and outpatient same-day surgeries, as well as help individuals with chronic pain associated with injury or illness at The Pain Medicine Center. 

As part of our ongoing mission to provide exemplary surgical care, in fact, Florida Hospital East Orlando recently renovated two of our operating rooms. These rooms were enlarged and updated to feature a state-of-the-art integration system that allows for increased efficiency in patient care. This integration system includes HD video screens with touch-screen control and electronic documentation; PACS imaging, a tool that allows physicians to access MRI and CT scans and other critical information during surgery; improved equipment control; video conferencing; and laminar flow, which creates a more sterile environment that decreases the risk of infection. 

In addition, we specialize in outpatient surgeries designed to get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible—surgery in our bed, recovery in yours. In some cases, we offer same-day outpatient surgery, especially for minimally invasive procedures. Along with our innovative technology and advances in pain management, these surgeries can have you home quicker, and with less pain and scarring. Indeed, recovery is very often faster when it’s in the comfort of one’s own home, surrounded by family and friends. At-home recovery also reduces the risk of infection, allows for less disruption to your day-to-day life, and is often less expensive. 

Our pre-admissions process aims to make your surgery experience more convenient and streamlined. Registration and the pre-admission interview are conducted at the hospital, and coordinated to both meet your needs and reduce travel time. A member of our team will collect your insurance information and perform and necessary tests, as well as go over your pre-procedure checklist. Please make sure to remember to bring all of the paperwork your surgeon gives you, along with your insurance card and any other information our staff requests.

General Surgery Procedures

Despite its name, general surgery isn’t simply a catchall term for surgical procedures. Rather, it’s a specialty that focuses on surgeries of the abdomen, as well as the breast, colon and rectum, and conditions such as digestive disorders, hernias and vascular issues. Our expert surgeons are trained to treat conditions such as colorectal cancer, pancreatic and liver disorders and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). We also perform a wide range of endoscopic procedures. 

If you have any questions about whether or not our general surgery team can address your malady, give us a call today at (407) 303-8620.
