Surgery and appointment information – Learn more

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have expanded and changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person, by phone or by video. There may be times when an appointment or procedure may be rescheduled. In which case, we will contact you to let you know. Rest assured, all urgent needs will be addressed promptly.

Existing ChristianaCare patients can request an appointment using their patient portal account.

Visitor restrictions are still in place for your protection. Please refer to our visitor policy for more details.

Our operating rooms are now accommodating elective procedures.

As an added safety measure, all patients will be screened for COVID-19. If needed, your doctor will order a COVID-19 test to be performed at a ChristianaCare laboratory three to five days before your procedure.

Trust in Our Experience

If you need surgery, you want to feel confident in the surgeon you choose. At ChristianaCare, our surgical team has the experience and expertise to give you that confidence – and get you through your surgery and back to your life as quickly as possible.

Our board-certified surgeons are here to partner with you for your surgical needs at Christiana Hospital or Wilmington Hospital.

General surgeons treat a broad range of illnesses and injuries affecting the abdomen, breast, skin and soft tissue, endocrine system, and digestive tract. Our surgeons have interests and expertise, including common surgeries such as:

  • Hernia repair.
  • Gallbladder.
  • Gastrointestinal.
  • Bariatric.
  • Colorectal.
  • Many more procedures.

Surgery may be a traditional “open” surgery, or our surgeons may recommend a minimally-invasive laparoscopic or robotic approach.
