General Surgery, Advanced Care

At Anna Jaques Hospital, our general surgeons care for a wide range of common and complex conditions. Our team focuses on both acute care services and advanced specialty care, from hernia repair to cancer surgery.

We treat the digestive tract, the endocrine system, the skin and soft tissues, blood vessels and many types of cancer. Whenever possible we use laparoscopic and minimally invasive techniques.

Patient Focused, Personalized Care

When you come to Anna Jaques for general surgery, you get the advanced quality care you would expect from a large medical center. Plus, we offer the closeness of a community hospital setting. 
We take time to plan your entire care journey. You discuss treatment options with your care team. We answer your questions and work with you on a plan for your recovery. If you have day surgery in an outpatient setting, much of your recovery will take place at home. Together, we help you make the best treatment decisions for your specific case.

Our size and location give you easy access to inpatient and outpatient surgical services.
