Meet Dr. Andrew Garrett
Dr. Andrew Garrett is a general surgeon at The Surgical Clinic in Columbia, TN.

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
