General surgery is a term that can be confusing to some – it sounds as if it encompasses just about every kind of surgery, but that’s not the case.

In fact, “general surgery” is anything but general – it focuses primarily on the abdomen– the stomach, esophagus, intestines, liver, kidneys, pancreas, etc – as well as soft tissues, vascular surgeries, soft tissue and skin surgeries, and hernias, among others.

So while general surgery does encompass quite a few areas of the body, it’s still a very specialized surgical field, and not every general surgeon is able to complete every kind of required general surgical procedure.

Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital has experienced, specialized general surgeons – each of whom can treat different parts of the body – and have advanced expertise in mass removal, gallbladder surgery, and other specialized general surgical treatments.

More patients than ever are choosing specialty surgical hospitals for their care – and Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital is the best choice for any patient looking to undergo a general surgical procedure.

My husband and I both have chronic illnesses so we have been in numerous hospitals. This was the most pleasant experience we have ever had. The staff was very accommodating and when you called the nurses station someone came to the room immediately. The food was even the best hospital food. Recommend to anyone.


My son had his adenoids taken out and tubes put in. Everybody from the front desk to recovery was awesome! My toddler was a handful but they did everything they could to make all of us comfortable.


I rate this hospital and my experience a 5 out of 5 stars. I have to say that the facility is very clean. Precautions are taken to protect the hospital, staff, and patients against Covid. I would not hesitate to recommend Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital to anyone. Just can’t say enough positive things about the hospital and all the staff. Thank you!


My stay at Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital was the best. Everyone was compassionate and professional. I only suffered minimal pain. The food was excellent; the hospital was very clean and orderly. I’m very particular about cleanliness and the hospital met even my tough standards. Everyone was so kind. God Bless.
