Procedures Performed:

The practice of General Surgery involves the diagnosis and management of a wide
variety of conditions affecting the skin, chest and abdomen.  This includes, but is not limited to  surgical management of cancers of the breast, internal organs, and other tissues. Surgical treatments vary from minor, in-office procedures to those that are more involved and require hospitalization and the use of specialized equipment such as laparoscopy.  In addition, the practice of General Surgery often enlists Dr. Johnson’s skill and knowledge in coordinating a team of physicians to provide comprehensive management required of certain medical conditions.
