Learn about Dr. Conn

Care Philosophy

My philosophy involves using minimally invasive techniques to treat patients. In doing so, I hope to reduce the patient's post-operative pain. I use a lot of perioperative pain control techniques, long-acting local anesthetic, and post operative pain medication. I also, try very hard to communicate with my patients. I am currently the only surgeon in the area who performs single-incision gallbladder surgery. I believe everyone deserves great care.
