Our surgeons are board-certified diplomates of the American Board of Surgery. Three are also diplomates of the American Board of Colon & Rectal Surgery. Each is a subspecialist in highly specific areas. Rather than doing a large variety of operations occasionally, we prefer to focus on using advanced techniques to do fewer operations – but do them often and expertly. As a result, many of our patients travel from well outside the Portland area to have their consultation and surgery with us.
We take pride in our individual subspecialties and work hard to maintain our expertise. As a group we can provide skilled, advanced care for many general surgical conditions, but if any of us believes a patient would be better served with another surgeon or specialist, either locally or outside of the Portland area, we will honestly make that referral and help get a timely appointment.
We are members of the teaching faculty for both the Tufts University School of Medicine – Maine Medical Center Program and Maine Medical Center’s own General Surgery Residency Training Program.
