Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Terhes "Life is an adventure to be lived and my goal is to get you back to that adventure as soon as possible. I am committed to excellence in healthcare. I perform most surgeries non-invasively or laparoscopically, unless it is in your best health interest to do an open-operation. I work hard to stay abreast of current surgical trends and research and participate in ongoing continuing education. I look forward to talking to you about your operation and how best to approach your specific surgical needs."
