Evangelical’s Surgical Services Now in Williamsport

Evangelical Community Hospital, Lewisburg, is extending its surgical expertise to the Williamsport area. Consultations for surgeries like hernia repair, gallbladder removal, and other minimally invasive surgeries, as well as complex vascular procedures, are available with Evangelical’s Surgical Specialists at 435 River Road, Williamsport (inside the Eye Center).
 
The expansion of this service in Williamsport allows for patients to have the convenience of consultation and pre-surgical planning close to home. The actual procedures will be performed by surgeons with over 12 decades of combined experience in Evangelical’s state-of-the-art operating rooms.
 
In 2011, Evangelical expanded its surgical strength by acquiring a local surgical group, now known as Evangelical Surgical Specialists. The eight board certified surgeons, specialize in everything from general surgery, to head and neck surgery, to wound care and hyperbaric medicine with special emphasis on minimally invasive procedures that have the patient back to their active lifestyle sooner with less pain and scarring.
 
All of the surgeons are certified by the American Board of Surgery with several holding medical directorships over departments of Evangelical such as wound and hyperbaric medicine, bariatric and surgical services, the peripheral vascular lab, and Evangelical’s center for breast health.
 
The expansion of surgical services to the Williamsport area provides another choice of specialists to individuals in Lycoming County. Evangelical Surgical Services accepts most insurances and will work with physicians for referral.
