Dr. Gillian's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gillian "His expertise has resulted in Dr. Gillian becoming a common fixture on the national lecture circuit for surgeon training and at times a featured speaker on the international stage. In the past he has been an invited speaker and trainer in England, Germany, China, Taipei and South Korea. He has facilitated the hands on training and proctoring of surgeons in other specialties like Urology, Ob/Gyn and Cardiothoracic surgery as well. Conference or lecture topics in the past by Dr. Gillian have included a wide variety of laparoscopic surgical subjects including: inguinal hernias, incisional hernias, sports hernias, chronic groin pain, cholecystectomy (gallbladder), solid organ surgery, adrenalectomy, splenectomy, colon resection for benign and malignant disease, hand-assisted surgery, exploration for chronic abdominal pain, hiatal hernia repair, and Nissen fundoplication for reflux. The motivation for these teaching events has been to further spread the humanistic benefits of laparoscopic surgical techniques to surgeons in a variety of fields and to make it a safer and more comfortable experience for the patients in our care."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gillian ""Minimally Invasive... Maximum Benefit"

We have often been told that we are " not like other surgical practices".  I think that is unfortunate for many reasons.  We know surgery is serious and a source of great anxiety for many of our patients. Consequently we try to spend as much time as is necessary to EDUCATE our patients about their condition and options.  Despite all the advantages of consults with Dr. Google or WebMD most patients really don't understand their disease as well as they thing they do.  We feel that the better you understand the problem the better patient you will be in the long term because we can communicate with you better before,during and after surgery.  EVERYONE in my office from the front desk to the clinicians understand your problem  in great depth and can help you when you have questions. Even the "dumb" ones.  - Dr Gillian. 

Please see the  our web site for details  and view the Youtube and Google video links on our site."

Had LINX surgery with Dr. Gillian two weeks ago. Very glad that I did. Traveled 300 miles to get to the right surgeon, and I'm very glad that I did. Support staff are excellent as well.

Dr. Gillian is friendly, factual and genuinely wants his patients to experience a better quality of life. Surgery should never be entered into lightly. The extensive testing required to ensure that a surgical procedure will help with your GERD and other symptoms is not fun, but hearing the results...more

Dr. Gillian performed a myotomy on me in June, 2017. The date he arranged was earlier than I expected and I was the first surgery of his day. It was incredibly considerate of him to accommodate my needs in such a fashion! Upon completion of the surgery everything that Dr. Gillian stated...more
