Services We Provide
Commonly called weight loss surgery, bariatric surgery includes a variety of procedures performed on people struggling with obesity. Weight loss through bariatric surgery is achieved by gastric banding, gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. As obesity carries some incredibly serious health risks and for many patients, bariatric surgery is literally life changing.
Colon and Rectal Surgery
Also referred to as colorectal surgery, colon and rectal surgeons at North Florida Surgeons excel in the preventive care, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care of the colon, rectum and anus. Our experienced and caring team will make you as comfortable as possible so you can feel at ease while discussing your health or asking questions.
We help patients with a wide range of conditions, including:
- benign anorectic disorders (hemorrhoids, abscesses, fissures and fistulas)

The endocrine system is a major control system of the body, regulating temperature, metabolism and many other processes. At North Florida Surgeons, our endocrine surgeons deal with surgical issues involving the adrenal glands, gastrointestinal tract and endocrine pancreas, as well as the thyroid and parathyroid glands.
A highly specialized field, our endocrine surgeons offer state-of-the-art surgical care employing both traditional and minimally invasive approaches, which may include removal of the thyroid, parathyroid surgery and adrenal gland surgery.
No matter what the need, our general surgeons will collaborate with each other and your referring physicians to give you comprehensive, seamless care for a full range of complex problems involving all regions on the body.
This includes common procedures, like hernia operations, and benign and cancerous conditions such as:
- abdomen (gallbladder, liver, pancreas, spleen, adrenal glands)
- gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, appendix, colon, rectum, anus)
- skin and soft tissue (melanoma, cysts, lipomas)
Our general surgeons often use a minimally invasive approach when it is an option for certain procedures, such as Laparoscopic Surgery.
Hand & Wrist Surgery
Hand surgeons at North Florida Surgeons excel in diagnosis, preservation and restoration to the form and function of the hand, wrist, forearm and more. Our hand surgery specialists are trained to care for disorders such as:

Often called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), band-aid surgery or keyhole surgery, laparoscopic surgery is an innovative surgical technique in which abdominal operations are performed through small incisions, often less than a centimeter long. Laparoscopic surgery gets its name through the use of a laparoscope, which is a small video camera attached to a fiber optic cable system used to guide the operation.
Laparoscopic surgery can treat most gastrointestinal tract and abdominal conditions, including:
- gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy)
- bariatric or weight loss surgery
- hiatal hernia repair
- colorectal surgery
There are a number of advantages to laparoscopic surgery, such as reduced pain, less chance for complications, a shorter recovery time and minimal scarring. Your surgeon will discuss with you whether or not you may be a candidate for laparoscopy or if you will need a traditional open incision.
Patients get access to the most advanced and comprehensive musculoskeletal care, utilizing the latest technologies in a safe and effective manner to help restore them to active lifestyles. Our expertise includes sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, spine surgery, elbow and shoulder surgery, general orthopedics, and acute orthopedic urgent care.
