A colonoscopy is the most thorough screening exam to both detect colon cancer and look for pre-cancerous polyps. Left untreated, these polyps can lead to cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. However, if it’s detected early during a colonoscopy, it is highly treatable and is very safe. Regular screenings should start at age 45.

Gallstone Surgery

When gallstones, made of a hard, pebble-shaped material, block your bile ducts, they cause sudden pain. The expert surgeons at Glacial Ridge can remove your gallbladder and gallstones to give you relief. This minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedure is one of the most common surgeries performed annually in the United States.

GERD/Acid Reflux Surgery

Also known as acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) surgery is a permanent solution for patients suffering from chronic acid reflux. GERD surgery aims to recreate a one-way valve so digestive fluids don’t flow into the esophagus, causing pain. Surgeries are usually performed laparoscopically through a small incision so that the patient will have less scarring and a faster recovery.

Hernia Repair Surgery

At Glacial Ridge Center for Surgical Care, our surgeons specialize in laparoscopic (small incision) hernia surgeries, commonly performed in the inner groin, outer groin, belly button, or upper stomach. Hernias don’t go away by themselves through time, exercise, or therapy. If you suspect you have a hernia, see your doctor at Glacial Ridge. If not treated, they can lead to serious complications.
