General Surgery

Patient-Focused Care Close to Home

Our goal at Mary Washington General Surgery is to provide the highest-quality surgical care delivered with courtesy, compassion, and attention to each unique need. Patients are treated with a team-based approach which includes a group of experts from multiple medical specialties.

Who Are the American College of Surgeons?

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is the governing body for surgeons and provides prospective patients with the information they need to objectively evaluate a physician.

ACS, the largest international organization of surgeons in the world, recommends patients choose surgeons who meet the following criteria:

  1. Board certification in general surgery and/or surgical critical care
  2. Hospital or ambulatory center accreditation
  3. Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons (FACS). The American College of Surgeons admits to its Fellowship only those surgeons whose professional activity is devoted to surgical practice and who agree without compromise to practice by the professional and ethical standards of the College.
