Welcome to the 51st Medical Group's General Surgery Department. The general surgery section is staffed by one General Surgeon, one surgical PA, two nurse anesthetists, two operating room registered nurses, four operating room technicians, and one clinic technician. We provide service to over 12,000 Osan AB beneficiaries and serve as the primary referral center for Kunsan AB, Suwon AB, and USAG Humphreys. We evaluate and treat a wide variety of surgical conditions whether elective, urgent, or emergent. We also conduct colon/gastric cancer screening and have the capability to perform minor procedures in clinic. General Surgery is a referral-based clinic. You must see your Primary Care Manager to determine if a referral is appropriate. Once a referral has been placed in the system, you will be contacted by Tricare or one of our clinic staff to schedule an initial evaluation with the surgeon or PA.
All first time patients need to arrive 15 minutes prior to their initial evaluation to complete an intake form
Due to limited appointment availability and high demand, patients who miss their initial evaluation or cancel less than 24 hours prior to their initial appointment will be "No-Showed," and a letter will be sent to the respective commander.
