Our goal is to provide quality surgical care with the highest levels of competence and compassion. Our patient-centered environment begins with a friendly, efficient office staff who will assist in making appointments and answering questions before and after your evaluation. During your visits, it is important to our surgeons to listen to each patient’s concerns, and to thoroughly inform patients regarding diagnosis and treatment options, so that you can make informed decisions concerning your care. Our physicians are available 24/7 for elective and emergent needs.
Please feel free to contact us at 423-472-5423 with any questions or concerns, or to make an appointment. We appreciate the opportunity to participate in your surgical care.
Our Services: Our Board Certified/Eligible surgeons perform numerous procedures, from removal of minor skin growths and treatments of varicose veins in the office to more complex surgeries done at Tennova Health Care (formerly Skyridge) and the Surgery Center of Cleveland. All of our surgeons perform advanced laparoscopic as well as open procedures. In most cases, surgery for the gall bladder, colon, appendix, spleen, and hiatal hernia will be done laparoscopically (minimally invasive surgery technique). Several of our procedures are completed using a "robotic" technique.
Examples of problems our surgeons can evaluate and treat include:
- Gall Bladder
- Colon Surgery for Cancer and Diverticulitis
- Hernia Repairs - Inguinal and Abdominal
- Hiatal Hernia Repair for Acid Reflux
- Upper and Lower Endoscopy (EGD and Colonoscopy)
- Breast Diseases - Benign and Cancerous
- Skin Lesions - Benign and Cancerous
- Ingrown Toe Nails
- Ganglion Cysts
- Carpal Tunnel Release
- Dialysis Access
- Varicose Veins

During your office or hospital evaluation, we will discuss and explain treatment options and often provide educational materials for your review. If you would like to learn more about the above general surgery conditions and procedures for treatment, webmd.com, mayoclinic.org, and cancer.net websites are good sources of information for patients.
