Our surgeons are leaders in the community, within the University, and at national and international levels within the profession of surgery. They have chosen to teach; a commitment taken very seriously and one that requires they accept the additional responsibility of educating future doctors. As experienced teachers, they must continually stay abreast of current practice standards, apply evidence-based medicine and become proficient in the newest technological advancements. They must be willing to teach others how to continually learn and improve, based on principles of life-long learning.

Our team of surgeons, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses & medical staff provide exceptional health care in a comfortable and caring environment. We are sensitive to the importance of your privacy and we are dedicated to protecting your confidentiality. We will work with you, your family and your personal physician to personally and professionally coordinate all aspects of your care.
