The general surgeons at Maryland Surgeons introduced minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to Howard County General Hospital, performing the Hospital’s first laparoscopic cholecystectomy during 1990. We introduced the Breast Program in 1999, and began performing stereotactic and also ultrasound guided core biopsies in the hospital. Currently, Maryland Surgeons provides more than eighty percent of all Breast, Endocrine, General and Colorectal Surgical Services at Howard County General Hospital. Our general surgeons have completed advanced training in minimally invasive surgery and whenever clinically indicated, perform colon, spleen, gallbladder, and hiatal hernia procedures using advanced minimally invasive technique.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Laparoscopic cholecystectomy?

A. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of your gallbladder using a laparoscope, which is a thin metal tube with a light and tiny camera, and also other surgical tools. The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that is part of the digestive system. Specifically, it lies beneath the liver on your right side. Further, it stores bile, which is a fluid produced by the liver to help to digest fats. The gallbladder is removed when you have gallstones, pain, or swelling in your gallbladder.

Q. What is Oncologic surgery?

A. Oncologic surgery is cancer surgery.
