All the surgical specialists in the Department of Surgery at Greenville Health System have advanced fellowship training and limit their clinical, educational and research efforts to their specialty of interest. The members of the Department of Surgery are actively involved in research and clinical trial programs to assure patients of the most up-to-date treatment modalities.
The current education programs involve training both medical students and surgical residents; this allows us to continue to train South Carolinas’ future physicians and surgeons. GHS currently has residents in:
Minimally invasive surgery
Our team consistently strives to explore new areas of clinical expertise in order to train future surgeons. It’s imperative that our surgeons remain academically active through teaching, attending and presenting at regional and national surgical conferences and lecturing worldwide. It is important to note that our surgeons are more than highly skilled doctors. We explore the best surgical options in the broadest context of a patient’s overall health and life circumstances, treating each patient with the most individualized care possible. Our patients receive the most current surgical therapy and quality results available. We do all this in the context of training the next generation of surgeons – a responsibility we take great pride.
It is our daily mission to “heal compassionately, teach innovatively, and improve constantly”. The surgeons and professional staff of the Department of Surgery at GHS are proud to live our mission everyday – by doing so; we continually strive to grow a healthier community.
