Vanderbilt’s general surgeons are among the best in the region, if not the nation. We offer many types of surgery, including minimally invasive procedures. Our team includes the only surgeon in Middle Tennessee performing peroral endoscopic myotomy for achalasia. We also offer magnetic sphincter augmentation for reflux.
Our highly trained surgeons have extensive experience performing a wide range of complex surgeries using minimally invasive techniques: endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgeries.
We offer magnetic sphincter augmentation for treating GERD (reflux, or heartburn). Our team also includes the only surgeon in Middle Tennessee who performs peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) to treat achalasia.
Our Fast Track Clinic is a special coordination among many members of our care team. It serves people who need gallbladder or other routine surgeries but who are otherwise healthy. This clinic allows us to evaluate you and schedule your procedure quickly, often within one week.
We help you understand your treatment options and create a plan tailored to your health and needs.
As the only academic medical center in Middle Tennessee, we offer access to clinical trials for new surgical methods before they’re available at most other hospitals.
We want to make your experience as seamless and stress-free as possible. You can use our secure online portal, My Health at Vanderbilt, to contact your care team 24/7, schedule appointments, manage medications and access your medical records.
