Meet Our Surgeons
The Surgical Clinic Physicians are Members of the American College of Surgeons
The Surgical Clinic, is a partnership of specialized surgeons in the greater Middle Tennessee region who are each dedicated to providing state-of-the-art, patient-centered care in locations that are strategically located to be close to the communities of the patients they serve. We know that having your support team of family and friends nearby is an important part of your recovery. The entire team at The Surgical Clinic is focused on getting you back to your life as quickly as possible.
Very early in its development, The Surgical Clinic made a commitment to insuring that each of the physicians in the practice are Board Certified or Board Eligible for certification in their respective specialties. This means that each surgeon has had to stand for a comprehensive exam (both written and oral) by a specialty body of physicians in their discipline. This exam is only possible after a rigorous Residency, and possible Fellowship Program which happens after graduation from Medical School. A Surgical Residency most commonly takes five years to complete. A Fellowship is added if there are other areas of specialized surgery that the physician wants to learn to do.
Most of The Surgical Clinic physicians also maintain membership in the American College of Surgeons. Members of the American College of Surgeons are referred to as “Fellows.” The letters FACS (Fellow, American College of Surgeons) after a surgeon’s name indicates that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College.
We strongly encourage you to explore the biographical information about your surgeon on the website. Here you will find information about where they went to school, what their training was, which office(s) you can schedule to meet in and where your surgeon admits patients who need hospital-based care. In addition, each surgeon has posted an introductory video so that you will know a little about them before you meet in the office.
Entrusting your care to The Surgical Clinic is both an honor and a responsibility we take very seriously. We look forward to meeting with you to walking beside you as you recover.
