Surgery Services

Digestive Tract

The digestive tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus.  This includes illnesses such as colorectal cancer, appendicitis, diverticulitis, and intestinal obstruction.

Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is the surgical management of various cancers, such as breast, small intestine, colon, rectal, skin, melanoma, thyroid, and others.

Critical Care | Trauma

We have expertise in the management of critically ill patients and trauma victims, who do not require the resources of a larger medical center, and collaborate with various rehabilitation facilities.

Skin | Soft Tissue

Benign and malignant skin lesions are common, and our providers manage the entire spectrum of the treatment of these conditions, from the treatment of soft tissue infections, to the resection of simple cysts to the management of skin cancers including melanoma.

Venous Disease

Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged or diseased. As a result, vein valves will not close properly, leading to symptoms such:

Varicose veins
Pain
Swollen limbs
Leg heaviness and fatigue
Skin changes and skin ulcers

Using ultrasound to scan your leg(s), Dr. Swierzewski will determine if superficial venous reflux is present. If it is, you are a candidate for the ClosureFast procedure. During this procedure, a thin catheter is inserted into the vein. The tip of the catheter heats the vein and seals it shut. Blood then reroutes itself to healthy veins. Patients can drive themselves home and typically return to normal activities within 2 days with pain free legs.

Breast Disease

Our surgeons have extensive experience in the management of both benign and malignant breast disease. Patients diagnosed with breast cancer are evaluated immediately and their individualized, multidisciplinary treatment is coordinated with our superb medical and radiation oncology colleagues, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and pathologists.

We provide minimally invasive approaches to breast cancer surgical care when indicated. Breast conserving therapy with lumpectomy, sentinel lymph node biopsy, skin-sparing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction when necessary, and accelerated partial breast irradiation are all contemporary approaches to breast cancer care that our surgeons have extensive experience with.

The surgeons of Seacoast Surgery are part of York Hospital’s comprehensive Breast Cancer Collaborative team, which has embraced a multidisciplinary approach to the care of women with breast cancer. The team includes physicians, nurse navigators, social workers, nutritionists and physical therapists, all dedicated to providing comprehensive care to breast cancer patients at York Hospital.
