General Surgery Specialist

Our clinic handles all types of general surgery operations, which is mostly concerned with the operations of abdominal organs.  

Laparoscopic and classical surgery are equally optional, and the approach is decided by the surgeon, having considered the patient’s best interest. 

We are equipped with modern instruments and devices for minimally invasive and classical surgery. Our patients are encouraged to undergo complete preoperative preparation, all necessary diagnostics, and anesthesiologist exam at our clinic before getting approval for surgery. This way, the patient gets full service in one place, in the shortest possible time. The patients are taken care of by our interdisciplinary team of experienced doctors and surgeons.

Patient Feedback

It was been a year since Dr. Edelman completed the surgery on me to stop my hands from sweating. What a year it has been! I have grown leaps and bounds socially and emotionally. I don’t have to worry about my sweaty hands anymore. I have Dr. Edelman to thank for this! He was very professional, very caring, and simply an excellent surgeon! I could not be more pleased being under his care, and I will be forever grateful for it. Words really can’t express how much I am appreciative, but this review will have to do. Thank you so much Dr. Edelman for changing my life for the better!

  Dr. Edelman is amazing!!! He has the best bedside manner! He is knowledgeable and takes his time to explain things. I had surgery today and I am in no pain and even went to the supermarket. I would recommend him in a heartbeat 💗. His staff is also amazing! They are so nice and helpful.

  I had hernia surgery with Dr. Edelman in March, and everything went absolutely perfect. Aside from being a fine surgeon, Dr. Edelman treats his patients with genuine care, explains the procedure in clear, simple terms, and does not try to force a decision on the patient. You can’t help but trust this doctor and go into surgery with full confidence in a positive outcome. The office staff is wonderful–very helpful, knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions in a friendly manner. I could not be happier with my choice of surgeon and his office.
