Jonathan E. Schoeff, MD, FACS, is a board certified general surgeon, specializing in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) and advanced spine access and exposure surgery. Dr. Schoeff was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. He received his medical degree and completed his general surgical residency training at the University of Cincinnati. He then began his surgical practice in July of 2009, relocating to San Diego on active duty in the United States Navy. After completing 4 and a half years of active duty service, he moved to Denver, Colorado. Dr. Schoeff's surgical practice focuses on minimally invasive surgery and advanced spine exposure and access, emphasizing a minimally invasive approach to the spine. In his own words, "I place substantial emphasis in my surgical practice on utilizing the latest techniques and technology to perform the majority of procedures through small incisions, using special instruments. This has been proven to dramatically decrease recovery time after surgery, overall need for narcotic pain medication, and time to return to full activity and work, with an overall improvement in quality of life". In addition to his technical expertise, Dr. Schoeff places the highest value on developing a close working relationship with every patient for whom he provides care. In describing his passion for patient care, Dr. Schoeff says, "… I feel a distinct obligation to know and understand every person that I care for, well beyond their immediate surgical problem to include their background, views, and ideals. In so doing, I believe that I can provide the highest quality surgical care, ranging from the routine to the complex, with the patient's core needs, values, and beliefs as the central focus." Combining his experience and expertise acquired from multiple tours in Afghanistan, along with extensive specialized training in advanced laparoscopic procedures including groin, abdominal wall, and hiatal hernia surgeries, as well is minimally invasive spine exposure techniques, Dr. Schoeff is able to provide the latest specialized procedures to maximize benefit and minimize recovery time for his patients. Dr. Schoeff and his wife currently reside in south Denver. In addition to his passion for surgery, Dr. Schoeff enjoys hiking and biking with his wife, as well as participating in Tough Mudder adventure races, where he raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Additionally, they are both avid Denver Broncos and Ohio State Buckeyes fans.
I believe in a comprehensive approach to surgical care for each and every patient, and consider each patient I care for as an individual person rather than a disease process, or cluster of symptoms. I make every effort to view all patients I care for as a highly complex combination of illness and also belief systems, life experience, and values. I realize that illness affects everyone differently and strive to better understand the impact of the disease process on each patient's daily life and routine. In so doing, I believe that I can provide the highest quality surgical care, ranging from the routine to the complex, with the patient's core needs, values, and beliefs as the central focus.
