General surgery refers to the utilization of operative procedures to treat injuries, deformities, and diseases. It is frequently used to alleviate suffering when a cure is unlikely through medication alone.

Areas of the body that we treat are the stomach, liver, intestines, appendix, breasts, thyroid gland, salivary glands, some arteries and veins, and the skin.

Punxsutawney Physician Group’s highly experienced general surgeons serve Indiana to provide evaluations and treatment for a wide variety of diseases and conditions. With superior skills and a compassionate, patient-centered approach to care, our surgeons are up to date on the latest and most innovative procedures. We strive to focus on quality, safety, and the least invasive approach to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient.
