Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lawson "While the technical realities of general surgery are often straight-forward, a patient's overall condition and co-morbidities often make the decision making process complex. I encourage my patients to take an active role in their care by providing information so that patients can participate in the decision making and appropriately evaluate risks with regard to surgical treatment of their disease process."
