General surgery is a surgical discipline that requires in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of bodily systems and diseases, most specifically those in and affecting the abdomen. It is this great breadth of knowledge that distinguishes a general surgeon from other specialties. Patients with complex cases and comorbidities can benefit from the care of a general surgeon who has robust knowledge of the systems affected by the co-occurring chronic conditions present.
New laparoscopic and robotic techniques for abdominal surgeries are emerging constantly and this field of medicine continues to evolve. As a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, Dr. Kotak works ardently to stay up to date with the most innovative surgical options available to his patients. He is also well trained in traditional surgical methods. Read more about Dr. Kotak here.
