General Surgery

Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber is dedicated to providing a safe and personalized surgical experience for each of our patients. We are proud of our low infection rates and consistent, quality care.

Additionally, our team of experienced surgeons and staff use the latest techniques and advanced technology during procedures. Our surgery department is equipped to perform a variety of procedures, both laparoscopically or through traditional open surgery. Laparoscopic, or minimally invasive, techniques use small incisions and miniaturized instruments. While, open surgery procedures are done through one large, open incision.

Make an appointment with our surgeons, or ask your surgeon to perform your surgery at CSSMCW.
