General Surgery is a specialty that focuses on the abdomen and its contents including breast, skin, soft tissue, head and neck, vascular systems and endocrine systems. We strive to use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. This technology allows doctors to operate with greater precision, smaller or fewer incisions that decreases patient discomfort, lowers risk of infection and complications, decreases downtime post surgery and allows for quicker healing.
At Riverview Regional Medical Center, our General Surgeon Dr. Chris Bratton, MD has extensive training and knowledge of patient care before, during and after surgery. With comprehensive management in trauma, emergency room, intensive care and burn units, he is also highly qualified at diagnosing conditions specific to the full abdomen area.
