General Surgery

According to the American Board of Surgery, "General Surgery is a discipline that requires knowledge of and familiarity with a broad spectrum of diseases that may require surgical treatment."

Our surgical specialists from Surgical Associates of Ithaca, Dr. David Schwed, and Dr. Wade Bollinger have a breadth of surgical experience that is unmatched in this region, and are committed to the well-being of those who entrust their care to them. Their goal is to provide patients with prompt, state-of-theart care in a comfortable, supportive environment.

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

Surgical Associates' 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

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

*Note: Some major surgeries may need to be performed at Cayuga Medical Center, rather than Schuyler Hospital.
