General Surgery

At Eviva, we offer an array of general surgeries which may be necessary on your path to having bariatric surgery.

Endoscopy & Colonoscopy

Upper endoscopy enables the physician to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (first part of the small intestine).
Colonoscopy allows the physician to look inside your entire large intestine, from the rectum up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine enabling the physician to see inflamed tissue, abnormal growths, ulcers, and bleeding.

Acid Reflux – GERD

Depending on your background, the term “GERD” may or may not be familiar to you. GERD is an acronym that stands for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

Hernia Center

Eviva offers consultation and surgical repair for those suffering with hernias.

Gallbladder

The gallbladder is a structure on the underside of the liver on the right side of the abdomen. The function of the gallbladder is to store bile that is produced in the liver before the bile is secreted into the intestines.
