Do you need a general surgeon? Trust the most experienced team of board certified surgeons at The Iowa Clinic. Our surgeons specialize in many areas of general surgery, including comprehensive breast care, hernia repair, gallbladder surgery, heartburn surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, intestinal surgery and surgical oncology.

The general surgeons at The Iowa Clinic are trained to perform a variety of procedures, including surgery for complex conditions. Many of the procedures performed at The Iowa Clinic can be done laproscopically, meaning only a few small incisions are made. Our surgeons are trained in the latest techniques, including robotic-assisted surgery using the state-of-the-art da Vinci surgical system. With da Vinci robotic surgery, surgical procedures are less invasive and patients often have a faster recovery.

Each procedure is reviewed on a case-by-case basis to make the most logical surgical decision resulting in the best possible outcome. The surgical team at The Iowa Clinic also specializes in colorectal surgery, surgical oncology and liver/transplant surgery. The collaboration among specialties is what makes The Iowa Clinic one of Central Iowa’s leading surgical options.
