General Surgery

Watson Clinic’s general surgery team performs a comprehensive catalog of surgical procedures, from treatments for routine ailments to complex cancer-related operations.  

These treatments include:  
  • gallstone procedures
  • hernia repairs
  • thyroid cysts
  • hiatal hernia
  • surgical treatments for cancers of the colon, skin, stomach, liver, pancreas and breast
  • appendix removals and disorder treatments
  • minimally-invasive splenectomies, parathyroid surgery, thyroid surgery, liver resections and pancreatic surgery
  • laprosopic and minimally-invasive procedures utilizing the latest technologies. 
Dr. Thomas Moskal is the first specialist in Lakeland to perform gallbladder removal procedures utilizing only a single 1-inch incision. Performed with robotic surgery technologies, the procedure inspires a shorter hospital stay, a significantly faster recovery time, and a virtually scar-free result.

In addition to receiving outside referrals, the general surgery team collaborates closely with physicians throughout Watson Clinic and Watson Clinic Cancer & Research Center, ensuring a smooth continuity of care for the patient.
