Complete Care for the Digestive System

Our USC Upper GI and General Surgery Program provides expert surgical care for the digestive tract. Our surgeons are internationally known for their research and clinical skill. Our major service lines include esophageal surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, weight-loss surgery and hernia surgery.

We stay on the forefront of minimally invasive techniques for your safety and comfort. We pioneered many of the minimally invasive techniques for treating:

  • Esophageal cancer
  • Gastric cancer
  • Gastroparesis
  • GERD
  • Hiatal hernias

These methods offer you a lower risk of complications, reduced scarring and a faster, more comfortable recovery.
