Our general surgeons perform consultations and surgeries on medical conditions involving the breast, endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, colon, liver, pancreas and rectum. The majority of our procedures are performed either laparoscopically and/or robotic-assisted.
Laparoscopic, or minimally invasive, surgery is a specialized technique that results in less pain, a shorter recovery and less scarring. The technique involves making several small incisions, or ports, where special instruments are passed through allowing a surgeon to watch detailed images of the abdomen on a high-resolution video monitor.
Robotic-assisted surgeries are beneficial because of the smaller incisions and improved surgical precision. Patients benefits may include a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss, reduced need for transfusions, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities.

I came with an inflamed gallbladder, and Dr. Hung helped me process different options for treatment. I ultimately decided on a cholecystectomy and I am feeling much better.
From the very first visit at the office, to admitting for surgery, through surgery and follow up visit, all aspects get a 10!!! Can’t remember the last time I was treated so professionally. The Staff was outstanding. Thank you very much.
The services that I receive from Dr. Anthony Tabatabai is excellent. Dr. Tabatabai and the staff are friendly and ensure that I am properly informed about my health and care. I would have no qualms in recommending them to friendly and friends.
Dr. Tabatabai was wonderful in treating my husband for a hiatal hernia. He was very compassionate, kind, explained the situation and what he could do to repair it. Would recommend him for any type of surgery that he specializes in. You are in good hands!
Dr Hung and his staff were Knowledgeable without being condescending, took my concerns seriously and remembered the specifics of my worries on surgery day. He and his staff were very responsive to my questions, caring and kind.
Dr. Hung removed my faulty gallbladder recently and I am so glad that my PCP referred me to him! He is very kind, well-informed, and he relays information in a way that is easily digestible. He is also very patient and answers every question in full detail to ensure you get the information you are seeking. He was very thorough in the follow up and overall, I am very happy with my experience. I was not enthused about the idea of getting my gallbladder out at 26 (thanks, genetics!) but he made me feel comfortable with the procedure and, ultimately, I am SO glad that I went through with it. I feel like a million bucks now! Thanks to Dr. Hung and all of the great staff who made my experience so positive.
Dr. Tabatabai surgically repaired my umbilical hernia – it’s very nice to have a “regular” belly button again! From the first time we met, I realized he’s a friendly, caring person, and he explained what he would do so I was clear what would happen during the surgery. The surgery went smoothly and I am happy with the results. At the follow-up a few weeks after the surgery, it was clear things healed up well and that I could get back to normal activities. Everyone I met at Surgical Associates has been friendly and easy to deal with, yet professional, and I would have Dr. Tabatabai do future surgery on me in a heartbeat.
Love! LOVE!! LOVE DR. HUNG!!! Talk about person-centered care!!!! My GP referred me to Dr. Hung for acute issues with my gallbladder. Dr. Hung and his nurse Lisa were both absolutely awesome!! They are kind, caring, intelligent, skilled, and wonderful human beings!! Dr. Hung listened and gave special attention to my personal concerns. I'm the person odd things seem to happen to, and in surgery, even before removing my gallbladder, Dr. Hung identified and successfully treated a second, very rare, potentially life-threatening medical condition that no tests ordered by 5 previous physicians had identified. I was back home a few hours later, on my feet a few days later, and able to celebrate Christmas with family rather than ending up in the hospital possibly fighting for my life. Dr. Hung, you gave me the best gift ever--health and more time with my girls! Thank you!!!!
