Meet the general surgeons
Dosher has more than 100 physicians and other professional providers on the Medical Staff of the hospital. In this issue of Dosher Heartbeat, we feature general surgery. This is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents, including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. The general surgeons below are in private practice and see patients in their offices and perform various procedures at Dosher. (Alphabetical by name of practice.)
