At Cape Cod Healthcare, you’ll find surgical experts with elite training who’ve chosen to practice on the Cape. Our general surgeons have performed countless surgeries at our facilities, giving them the deep experience not found in hospitals where medical residents perform surgery.
From One of Our Surgeons
“Here, we’re neighbors taking care of neighbors,” said Lawrence Novak MD, Cape Cod Hospital general surgeon. “As a result, we deliver care that is as good as, or better than, university hospitals.”
Procedures Performed by General Surgeons
General surgeons perform a broad range of procedures. Common surgeries include hernia repairs, gallbladder removal, colon and laparoscopic procedures, as well as the full range of surgeries associated with breast cancer.

- Abdominal surgeries
- Anti-reflux procedures
- Gallbladder removal
- Hernia repair – hiatal, groin and abdominal wall
