We at Maryland Surgeons believe that the relationship between patient and surgeon is crucially important to providing top-notch and personalized care.
We work closely with our patients to ensure that the best possible treatment is provided in a caring and compassionate setting. We aim to ensure our patients clearly understand their disease and how each treatment option will affect them.
Maryland Surgeons is a highly skilled group of board-certified general surgeons and use state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques when they perform surgery. Depending upon the patient and the disease, we can perform operations using laparoscopic or robotic surgery in many cases. These surgical techniques offer precision and improved cosmetic and functional outcomes.
We specialize in the following procedures:

Q. Where will my surgery be performed?
A. While some small procedures are office-based, such as some breast biopsies, incision and drainage of abscess, and some hemorrhoids, most procedures require not just local anesthetics, but actual anesthesia by an anesthesiologist and are performed in the hospital’s operating room. Most of our surgeons practice at both Saint Agnes Hospital, and also at Howard County General Hospital.
Q. How long will it be before my surgery is scheduled?
A. If your surgery is deemed an emergency, then it will be done immediately. Elective surgery is usually scheduled in as little as a few days and as long as a month, depending on the level of urgency and on how much preparation is required (eg, preop visits with your primary care provider and/or cardiologist, insurance approval, etc) to get you ready for your procedure.
Q. What do I do if I have problems at night or on weekends?
A. Just call our main office number of 443-574-8500 and follow the prompts. One of our physicians is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Refill for prescription pain medicine should be requested during normal office hours.
Q. Can I drive myself home after my surgery?
A. No. Patients receiving anesthesia or those taking prescription pain medicine should not operate a motor vehicle.
