General Surgery with Finney Trimble at GBMC

Redesigning care, with your safety top of mind.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GBMC Health Partners will continue to offer telehealth video visits for anyone who prefers that option. Please call your provider or login to MyChart to schedule an in-person or telehealth video visit today! If you have an existing appointment that you'd like to reschedule, please do so directly from your MyChart account.

* Please expect delays as our staff endeavor to assist all patients with their needs and questions. Do not send multiple MyChart messages or walk in to GBMC Health Partners locations without an appointment. We understand that patients are eager for access to care, and we are doing everything possible to respond to each patient as quickly as possible.

Finney Trimble Surgical Associates - Serving Baltimore for generations

The physicians of GBMC's Division of General Surgery strive to improve patient safety and satisfaction by performing the most appropriate surgical procedures using the least invasive techniques possible. This philosophy is facilitated by the availability of four surgical suites featuring fully integrated, high-definition equipment which allows seamless incorporation of minimally invasive laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, flexible endoscopic, robotic, radiologic, and endovascular techniques. Sophisticated video equipment makes these technologies available in any operating room on the GBMC campus.

Many of the surgeons at GBMC are fellowship trained in minimally invasive surgery and flexible endoscopy. Nearly every major general surgical procedure can be performed at GBMC.

GBMC's Division of General Surgery also proudly participates in the American College of Surgeons' National Surgery Quality Improvement Program. This national program is the only one of its kind in the country that measures surgical patient outcomes and provides hospitals with quality improvement tools.
