Breast Diseases

The physicians at Crighton Olive Dunn Surgical Group will bring some of the most advanced training and technology to meet your breast cancer needs. Our fellowship-trained surgeon and our other physicians offer ultrasounds and biopsies to accurately diagnose the stages of breast cancer or other breast disorders. Most of our treatment options are minimally invasive, which means less discomfort and a potentially faster recovery. Whether you are being treated with radiation or chemotherapy, or if surgical options need to be explored, rest assured that Crighton Olive Dunn physicians set a high standard in breast cancer care.

Colon and Rectal Surgery

Our colorectal surgical experience includes polyps, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease or diverticular disease. We will also offer outpatient treatment for benign diseases such as hemorrhoids. These options include minimally invasive surgeries to make your surgical experience more comfortable.

Endocrine Surgery

This surgery often involves surgery of the parathyroid glands, adrenal glands or the thyroid. These surgeries can be conducted for malignant or benign diseases.

Gallbladder Disease

The most common gallbladder surgery is the removal of gallstones, but also includes gallbladder removal or biliary surgery. These are minimally invasive, outpatient surgeries.

Acid Reflux

Otherwise known as acid reflux or heartburn, GERD treatment often needs to move beyond medication and into surgical care. Our minimally invasive surgery options, such as Nissen Fundoplication, will give patients instant relief from their symptoms. Call our office to register for your free screening.

Hernia Repair

A hernia occurs when bowel protrudes from the abdominal wall. This is often a painful condition, but it can be treated with minimally invasive surgery to get patients back on their feet in no time.

Pediatric Surgery

We know your children are precious to you. That is why Crighton Olive Dunn physicians reach beyond expectations to provide comprehensive surgical care for your child. Many of the surgeries listed here can be performed on kids, but some of our most common surgeries include appendectomies or hernia care.

Skin Disease

Abnormalities that appear on the skin may look like lumps or moles, but they could be the early signs of skin cancer. These abnormalities will be numbed by a local anesthetic and removed in our offices.

Surgical Oncology

Surgeries involving cancer are handled with professionalism and experience you can trust. Crighton Olive Dunn physicians treat many forms of cancer, including cancers in major organs or glands.

Trauma and Critical Care

You never know when a critical situation will arise, but you can know whom to turn to in an emergency. The physicians at Crighton Olive Dunn Surgical Group have many years of combined experience to respond to trauma and critical care needs. We will provide surgical care at a time when you need it most.
