Surgery

Do you know your surgeon?

At Surgery at Lake Oconee, we offer the expertise of a board-certified general surgeon along with the comfort and convenience of a locally based practice where we truly get to know our patients.

Dr. Bo Cheves has practiced in the Lake Oconee area for more than 25 years and is an active member of this community. As a general surgeon, he is skilled in a broad spectrum of surgical conditions affecting nearly every area of the body but specializes in:

  • Colonoscopy
  • EGD or esophagogastroduodenoscopy, to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum (upper part of the small intestine)
  • Hernia repair
  • Breast cancer surgery
  • Melanoma and other skin cancer surgery

Convenience and Quality

Your pre-surgery appointments and post-surgery follow-ups take place in our beautiful office at Lake Oconee, and your surgery typically takes place at St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital—both located just minutes away from popular neighborhoods surrounding the Lake Oconee region.

It’s one of the major benefits of Surgery at Lake Oconee: We deliver the high quality care of an academic medical practice, all within an easy drive. In fact, for many procedures such as colonoscopies, you can expect to check in, have your treatment, and be home and resting comfortably in just a few hours.
