General Surgery

treating our patients like family

A general surgeon has principal expertise in the diagnosis and care of patients with diseases and disorders affecting the abdomen, digestive tract, breast, and skin. A general surgeon is also trained in the treatment of patients who are injured or critically ill, and in the care of cancer patients and skilled in the use of minimally invasive techniques. Common conditions treated by general surgeons include hernias, gallstones, appendicitis, breast tumors, pancreatitis, bowel obstructions, colon inflammation, and colon cancer.

As a general surgeon in Texas, Dr. Villafani performs a range of surgeries and operations, usually focusing on areas and organs of the abdomen and their related organs. Dr. Villafani may utilize invasive or minimally-invasive surgical techniques, with the latter reducing recovery time and stress on the patient's body.

His goal is to care for you and get you back to your everyday life! At Millennium Physicians, we believe in treating our patients like family and improving your quality of life.
