Surgery

No matter what type, surgery should always be taken seriously. At Adena, we are very serious about making every surgery safe with the highest degree of attention from our surgical teams.

Adena has more than 30 experienced surgeons on staff, performing more than 10,000 inpatient, outpatient and same day surgical procedures each year. We know that when faced with surgery, patients need to understand their procedure and be made to feel as comfortable as possible. Our experienced General Surgery teams take time to be well-prepared and know the details of each surgical case and patient. We not only highly prepare our surgical teams, but we extensively prepare our patients, taking extreme care that they know what to expect during their entire surgical experience. 

Our skilled surgeons perform procedures at Adena Regional Medical Center, Adena Greenfield Medical Center and Adena Pike Medical Center. We offer procedures that span the entire breadth of surgical sub-specialties, providing the most suitable options: traditional (open), minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgeries, for our patients. Adena Health System is one of five Epicenters of Excellence in Ohio for robot-assisted general surgery – a distinction we are proud of and earn every single day.

At Adena, we’re taking extra precautions to ensure a safe environment for all patients, visitors and staff. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, including fever or cough, please call our COVID-19 Hotline at 740-542-SAFE (7233) and refrain from any in-office visits. 

Another way we work to keep patients safe is by offering Virtual Visits, using phone and/or video, to allow patients the option of consultation from their homes. While virtual visits are safe and convenient, they don’t always serve as a complete replacement for an in-office visit, and of course can’t replace a needed surgery. 

Our experienced Adena General Surgery teams are currently see the following types of surgeries: 

  • Urgent surgical procedures (tumor, cancer)
  • Elective surgery evaluations
  • EGD – Endoscopy and esophagus diagnosis testing for:
    • Speech disorders
