FAQ

Our surgeons specialize in advanced laparoscopic, endovascular, open vascular, general and venous surgical procedures, and is committed to providing each patient with an exceptional level of care and attention.

What is a general surgery practice?

In a general surgery practice highly trained board certified surgeons focus on the abdominal organs of the body. Some of the common issues are appendicitis, hernias, gallbladder, stomach and intestines. A general surgeon will have completed four years of medical school, earning the Medical Doctorate (MD) and then they will spend and additional five years in a surgical internship or residency program.

Since general surgeons must become competent in a large variety of surgeries, most internships or residencies will take place in large metropolitan cities with large hospitals.

Once a general surgery internship is completed, some surgeons, as they have at The Surgical Clinic at Mid-South Surgeons, will add an additional study in order to become vascular surgeons (an additional two years of fellowship) or breast surgeons (an additional one year of fellowship) or surgeons proficient in minimally invasive surgery (an additional one year of fellowship).

What is a vascular practice?

In a vascular surgery practice at The Surgical Clinic, board certified surgeons are focused on the way in which blood travels through the body. Because blood contains oxygen, the food for your body, and takes garbage out of your tissues to remove it, it is important that blood is traveling efficiently.

What we do know is that every minute of every day your heart sends a single droplet of your blood on a complete circuit through your body. When you stand, sit or move around the tubes that your blood is flowing through (the veins and arteries) have to adjust. And these tubes have to adjust to other changes you make like weight gain or pregnancy. Over time and with changes the veins and arteries can become less elastic and begin to sag. This allows blood to pool and can make it inefficient in getting a full circuit in a single minute.

Sagging veins can become painful and they can even become dangerous for patients. The good news is that vascular surgeons can help most people eliminate the saggy veins. And, with today’s technology, many times the surgery can be done in an outpatient setting.
