Pennock Patients
Welcome to Hastings Surgeons!

Our office is a general surgical practice of the Pennock Physician Network, providing evaluation and treatment for a full range of general surgery problems.

General surgery is often performed to alleviate suffering when a cure through medication alone is unlikely. In addition, some procedures are offered to avoid or even prevent further complications or disease. As general surgeons we perform a wide array of surgical procedures.

These procedures include GI endoscopy, endocrine surgery, skin and soft tissue procedures, breast surgery, thoracic surgery, and gastrointestinal surgery. We also have special interests in advanced minimally invasive surgery of the GI tract and abdominal wall, abdominal wall reconstruction, venous surgery, and breast surgery.

Our mission is to provide the best quality surgical care to the community which we live in. We strive to not only provide surgical care that meets current standards but incorporates advances in surgical medicine as is appropriate. We also aim to create a professional and personable environment because we know that people are more than simply a disease process or surgical case and deserve to be treated in a respectful, kind, caring environment!

TRANSANAL HEMORRHOIDS (THD)

Hemorrhoids are not a frequently discussed topic. Most people simply tolerate the problem and are often frightened by the thought of traditional surgery. It is estimated that 50% of Americans will, at some point in their lives, suffer from hemorrhoids.

Now you can find relief and get back to enjoying life. Hastings Surgeons now offer the THD procedure, a minimally invasive surgical approach to treating the source of the hemorrhoids. And, because there is no surgical removal of tissue, there is minimal post-operative pain. THD (Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization) is offered as an out patient procedure which gets you back to normal activities quickly.

Clinical results have shown that patients who have THD may encounter less pain, less risk of complications and faster return to activities inside of 4 days. It’s time to forget the pain and get back to life!

As your local THD physicians, we can help you on your road to recovery today. Call (269) 948-8411 to schedule your appointment today!

VNUS Closure procedure, varicose vein treatment

If you suffer from varicose veins, you’re a member of a very large club, and Hastings Surgeons can help! Some 25 million Americans face a daily struggle with the swollen, ropey veins that can cause throbbing pain, severe swelling, and heavy, tired legs.

Half of all Americans over 50, and two-thirds of women over 60, have the condition. And many have dealt with it for decades, because varicose veins can appear even in teenagers too young to vote.

Heredity is a factor in venous reflux disease – if your parents or siblings have had varicose veins, you're more likely to develop them – and people who are obese or have had multiple pregnancies are particularly susceptible, because the extra weight adds strain to the veins. Women are more vulnerable to the problem than men, partly because the hormonal changes brought on by menstruation, menopause and hormone-based drug therapy can relax vein walls and cause venous reflux.

Your lifestyle, particularly physical activity, can affect your odds of developing varicose veins as well. People whose careers require them to stand in place for long periods of time – nurses, teachers, waitresses, flight attendants and other service personnel, for example – have a higher-than-average risk of venous disease. So do people who do a good deal of heavy lifting.

Once it appears, venous reflux disease never goes away by itself – it's a progressive condition that can only worsen unless treated. Fortunately, the minimally-invasive, device-based advances in medical technology that have so profoundly impacted heart, lung and brain surgery in recent years are now having a similarly revolutionary impact on the treatment of varicose veins. The next-generation VNUS ClosureFAST™ catheter represents the cutting edge of that technology.

Patient Benefits

The VNUS Closure procedure is a minimally invasive treatment alternative with less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment. Using the Closure system, Hastings Surgeons' close the diseased veins by inserting the Closure catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. Heating the vein wall causes collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.

Venous reflux or venous insufficiency develops when the valves that usually keep blood flowing out of your legs become damaged or diseased.
