  • intestines

We also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, soft tissue and hernias.

Drs. Ferreiro and Max also perform vascular surgery.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our general surgeons’ training in the newest minimally invasive surgery techniques, combined with the skill and experience of MVHS’s care team assures patients a comprehensive approach to care. Our technology allows our surgeons to see vivid color images of procedures as they occur, providing patients with precise care, often resulting in less pain and shorter hospital stays.

Breast Surgery

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, women receive a breast cancer diagnosis more than any other cancer except skin cancer.

At MVHS, we understand that the words "breast cancer" can be scary to hear. That's why we take extra care with our patients in offering them the latest surgical techniques and technology to conserve as much breast tissue when possible.

Electronic Medical Record

All medical records are computerized, allowing us to maintain the most advanced coordination of your care. Your electronic medical records are integrated with our MVHS medical offices so doctors have quick access to your most current medical information should you require emergency care or be hospitalized.


Have your primary care doctor refer you to the MVHS Surgical Group. We look forward to meeting with you!
