Meet Dr. Andrew Garrett
Dr. Andrew Garrett is a general surgeon at The Surgical Clinic in Columbia, TN. Dr. Garrett’s interest in general surgery is partly due to the entire spectrum of cases a general surgeon specializes in. Head and neck surgery, including the thyroid and parathyroid surgery to robotic surgery, inguinal hernias and advanced laparoscopic procedures. “There’s really not one particular surgery that I enjoy more than the other, it’s just being able to help my patients get back to normal again.” – Dr. Garrett
