Fabulous doctor. I was totally stressed with my situation and had been given some ( not helpful ) advice for several years prior to seeing Dr Frankhouse. He did my surgery April 2015. I am now normal I am so thankful. I would recommend him to anyone with out hesitation.

Dr. Frankhouse says...

I treat a wide variety of conditions, both benign and malignant involving the digestive system, but primarily those involving the colon, rectum and anus.  I am trained and certified in both General Surgery and Colorectal Surgery. 

I enjoy the challenges of treating inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, and diverticulitis.  However, I also appreciate making people feel better no matter what the condition is.
