General Surgery Overview

At ASC Spartanburg, our general surgeons have specialized training in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of a wide range of conditions. They are proficient in surgical specialties including gynecology, urology and vascular surgery.

Our surgeons also are actively involved in developing and advancing new technologies that provide safer, more effective treatments. Chief among them is our routine use of minimally invasive surgical techniques which can greatly reduce the pain, risk, and recovery time for many patients.

With the finest staff in the region and a high nurse-to-patient ratio,  ASC Spartanburg prides itself on our patient focused environment. Because they have fewer patients to care for, our nurses are able to provide high-quality, individualized care. We find our customized care results in better recovery for our patients and a higher level of patient satisfaction.

Cutting edge technology, world-class physicians utilizing the most modern techniques, and the dedication of a highly trained and personable staff combine to make ASC Spartanburg a true center of excellence.
