Bryn Mawr Hospital was established in 1893 by Dr. George S. Gerhard, a local doctor who believed that medical expertise and community care should work hand in hand. For more than 100 years, the hospital and the communities it serves have supported each other to improve the health and quality of life of the neighborhoods. Today Bryn Mawr Hospital, a not-for-profit healthcare delivery network in Philadelphia's western suburbs, continues its leadership as a sophisticated community hospital offering advanced medical technology and access to some of the most qualified medical staff in the region.
The surgeons at Bryn Mawr Hospital bring a high level of expertise to a complete scope of general surgery services, including surgical oncology, surgery of the biliary and gastrointestinal tract, breast surgery, vascular surgery, endocrine surgery, minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery, access surgery for dialysis, surgery for hyperlipidemia, surgical endoscopy and pediatric surgery.
Residents at Bryn Mawr participate in all levels of surgical care of patients and run the general surgical service. The busy elective and emergent, largely bread-and-butter, general surgery operative experience is complimented by several weekly conferences including tumor board, thoracic and breast conferences and M&M.
