Dr. Para is great. - just wish he'd go to hospital other than St. Luke's Medical Center.

Dr Para is amazing!!! My scars are practically invisible! He truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to listen and he thoroughly explains the procedure. Before the procedure he makes sure that you understand all of the risks, possible side effects, and benefits to the procedure you're having done.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Para says..

I am a board-certified general surgeon, practicing the entire spectrum of surgical disease processes, including upper and lower endoscopy.  These procedures include breast, colon and thyroid cancer, abdominal procedures including gallbladder, stomach, spleen, appendix and small bowel, intra-abdominal adhesions and abdominal pain.  I treat and repair hernias of all types, including hiatal, ventral abdominal, inguinal, femoral and spigelian.  These procedure are mostly performed laparoscopically, through very small incisions.  I have a particular interest in GERD, and perform Nissen fundoplication, the STRETTA procedure, and TIF (incisionless fundoplication).

I also have a large practice of endoscopy cases, including EGD and colonoscopy, for benign and malignant disease, and have an active interest in venous insufficiency and the treatment of varicose veins and their associated problems.
