Learn about Dr. Garlitz

Care Philosophy

As a surgeon, I believe in quality and compassionate surgical care. I strive to do the right procedure for the right patient at the right time. I specialize in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) treatment for complex, abdominal wall hernia, breast cancer, thyroid and parathyroid disease, and surgical disease of the gallbladder, colon, intestine and stomach. I also manage and treat complicated, chronic wounds with advanced modalities, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
