Care Philosophy

As a General Surgery and Surgical Oncology practice, we understand the anxiety that comes with a diagnosis of cancer or other problem requiring surgery. We provide expert knowledge, skills and personalized plans for the treatment of benign and cancerous surgical conditions, to enhance the lives of our patients. We are there throughout the treatment process for our patients and referring physicians. We remain available to them both before and after surgery to ensure the best outcomes possible. As the first North Texas surgeons to implant the Linx device, we are committed to helping patients resolve symptoms, damage and serious risk accompanied with GERD.
