General Surgery Patient Care


The general surgery team offers a range of evaluation and surgical treatment services. Our experienced, highly qualified physicians and staff treat patients as unique individuals, each with his or her own health needs and life goals. Our faculty provide evaluation and surgical treatment for a broad spectrum of conditions:

GI Conditions

Center for Esophageal & Gastric Surgery

The simple acts of eating and drinking shouldn’t cause discomfort. If you’ve developed a disorder, disease or injury of esophagus and stomach, our clinical specialists are here for you. At any stage of life, conditions can emerge that make eating and swallowing painful or uncomfortable. At the UW Medicine Center for Esophageal & Gastric Surgery, we diagnose and treat patients for acid reflux (GERD), achalasia, Barrett’s Esophagus and other food-transit problems, hernias, diverticula and cancer.
