Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Willkomm "I was fortunate enough to receive some good advice from a high school teacher, and it reinforces my decision to become a surgeon.  My teacher told me "Find a career your love because you will be doing it for a long time."  My job comes with a lot of responsibility and stress, but I truly enjoy what I do and am thankful for the opportunity every day.  I truly consider myself lucky to be able to do something that brings a new challenge and new situation every day.

Having been trained on the da Vinci system during my general surgery residency, it was great to get back on the equipment in March of 2011 and be the first surgeon in Sarasota County to perform this type of robotic procedure at Venice Regional Medical Center.

Working at Surgical Associates of Venice & Englewood gives me the opportunity to have a home town atmosphere while providing cutting-edge approaches to patient care."

I just had an emergency gallbladder removal and received Dr Willkomm as my surgeon. He answered all my questions and put me at ease right away. My husband also felt I was in good hands. He was thorough but not rushed.

I recently selected Dr. Willkomm to remove my gallbladder. At age 70+ this was my first surgery ever.
