General & Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery in Buffalo, NY

Surgical Associates of Western New York is one of Buffalo’s largest general surgery practices with convenient office locations in West Seneca, Kenmore and Derby. We have six general surgeons on our staff: Dr. Michael Rade, Dr. Timothy Rasmusson, Dr. Richard Bloomberg, Dr. Kenneth Eckhert III, Dr. Rurik Johnson, and Dr. Robert Armstrong.

Our practice offers a wide range of surgeries and procedures, including minimally invasive surgery, SILSTM (Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery), robotic-assisted surgery, complex hernia repair, and operations using the latest implant devices, to name just a few.

We also provide in-office hemorrhoid treatment, which takes only a few minutes and requires no anesthesia.

Working with Your General Surgeon

Our patients always see their surgeon during office visits. We know how important it is to see your physician before surgery and at subsequent follow-ups. Additionally, at least one of our surgeons is rounding on all of our patients daily at Mercy Hospital, supported by a nurse practitioner and a physician assistant who provide great continuity of care.

Our general surgeons have operating privileges at most hospitals and outpatient treatment centers throughout Western New York, including Mercy Hospital, Kenmore Mercy, and the Center for Ambulatory Surgery (an outpatient center) located in our West Seneca office.
