General Surgeon

General Surgeon in Kailua-Kona, HI

We know that surgery is probably the last thing you ever wanted to think about. Still, depending on what condition, injury or disorder you’re dealing with, you may require surgery at some point during your lifetime to improve your health for the long term. If you are living on the Big Island and require surgery, our Kailua Kona, HI, general surgeon Dr. Nathan Tomita and his team provide more than a decade of surgical care and expertise. Here are some of the surgeries we specialize in,

General Surgery

A general surgeon is a “jack of all trades” surgeon. We can treat a broader range of diseases and disorders that require surgical care. A general surgeon understands the complexities and inner workings of the whole body rather than simply treating or specializing in a certain area. This means that we can perform surgeries on,

  • The endocrine system, including the thyroid
  • Breast, skin and soft tissue
  • Digestive tract
  • Stomach and liver
  • Head and neck
  • Vascular system
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Congenital disorders
  • Cancer (e.g., colon cancer)
  • The appendix
  • Hemorrhoids

From melanoma biopsies and removal to breast cancer and cyst removals, we perform surgeries on patients of all ages dealing with various injuries or illnesses.

Bariatric Surgery

Our general surgeon Dr. Tomita also provides comprehensive bariatric surgery to patients in Kailua Kona, HI. This means that any condition, trauma or infection that impacts the stomach, intestines, esophagus, abdomen, colon and rectum can be treated by our team. Hemorrhoids that aren’t responsive to home care may require minor surgery to have them removed. We also perform extensive biopsies to look for cancer in any area of the digestive tract. Obstructions, complications due to diverticulitis, enlarged gallstones and Barrett’s esophagus are also conditions we can treat through endoscopic and advanced surgical techniques when nonsurgical options haven’t worked.

TIF Procedure

Are you dealing with severe acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease that isn’t responding to home care and lifestyle changes? If so, you may want to speak with our team about whether the TIF procedure could be right for you. This minimally invasive procedure improves the shape and functionality of the esophageal valve to stop acid reflux. The procedure does not require incisions; the recovery period is about four to six weeks. This can also help individuals get off acid reflux medications such as PPIs, which can cause unpleasant side effects.
