What kind of surgery do you do?

This is probably the question I get asked most often – by my family, friends and patients.  
 
It’s hard to keep track of all the types of surgeries I’ve done over the course of my career. The greatest variety occurred during my training, when I operated on brains, bones, hearts and every body cavity including the head, chest and belly. The only type of surgery I haven't done is a joint replacement. I was fascinated by every one of these surgeries and I learned something from all of them and continue to be a student of medicine and surgery even at my age of 60.
 
When I started my practice to Oconto Falls, I wanted to focus on the kind of surgeries that belong in a small town hospital, including:  

  • Hernias of all types done with minimally-invasive laparoscopic approach or the open approach depending on what is best for the patient
  • Thyroid surgery for nodules and cancer
  • Skin surgery to remove lumps and bumps
  • Skin cancer
  • Gallbladder, stomach and intestine surgery for gallstones
  • Colon cancer or infections such as appendicitis
  • Breast biopsy and lumpectomy
  • Varicose vein surgery with the minimally-invasive VNUS technique
  • Wounds and ulcers
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Ganglion cysts
  • Colonoscopy to look for polyps and cancer
  • Upper endoscopy for severe heartburn, ulcer disease and infections of the stomach
For more complex surgeries where advanced care may be needed, our sister hospitals in Green Bay – HSHS St. Vincent Hospital and HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center – are perfect for those instances.
 
We are here to provide high quality care, close to home. Think about having surgery and then having a long car ride home, Ouch! Or a colonoscopy, yikes! We are here so that your family is close by to provide you with the support and care you need.
