Our Services

Surgical Associates has provided comprehensive, safe surgical care for more than half a century. We take as much pride in rendering thoughtful consultations as we do in our superb surgical technique.

Our doctors are qualified in all aspects of general surgery, including:

  • Thoracic (chest)
  • Gastrointestinal (digestive)
  • Colon
  • Biliary tract (liver, gallbladder, pancreas)
  • Bariatric (surgery for obesity)
  • Breast
  • Thyroid and parathyroid
  • Skin
  • Soft tissue

We have special expertise in advanced laparoscopic (minimally invasive) procedures, including hernia surgery; surgical endocrinology (glands), intensive care, and nutrition.

In-office surgery
Our in-office surgical service is comprehensive because, like our patients, we are concerned about convenient, affordable health care. We have two dedicated surgical procedure rooms in our suite of offices where a wide variety of minor operations are performed under local anesthesia.

Outpatient surgery
An alternative to in-office surgery is outpatient surgery, which we perform either at Cayuga Medical Center or at its Surgicare facility, adjacent to the Convenient Care Center located off Warren Road in Ithaca. Map

In-patient surgery
Each of our surgeons serves on the medical staff of Cayuga Medical Center. Our physician assistant and nurse practitioner have medical center privileges, as well, so that they may assist us in the operating room and in caring for our hospital patients. This approach provides continuity of patient care, beginning with the initial office visit and carrying through pre-hospital preparations, surgery and hospitalization, discharge planning, follow-up care, and the recuperation period.

Vascular surgery
Our vascular surgery patients in Ithaca have the benefit of an affiliation between Surgical Associates of Ithaca and the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Services at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. This is a well-trained and experienced group of surgical specialists who provide the high level of care we require for our patients.

Our affiliated vascular surgeons regularly see patients at our office here in Ithaca. They perform selected surgical procedures here in Ithaca, with our surgeons providing back-up and emergency coverage. Follow-up and new patient appointments to see our vascular specialists are made by calling our Ithaca office at (607) 273-3161.
