Dr. Sahm is an amazing person and a great surgeon. She has operated on my husband about 10 years apart. She is caring and sensitive and stays up on the current trend in medicine. You can have complete faith and confidence that you are getting the best care possible when you see her and you can be relaxed if you choose her to do your surgery.

Recently met Dr. Sahm in the emergency room and I needed urgent surgery she was knowledgable, empathetic, and clearly dedicated. My family was on their way from 3 hrs away and she returned to talk to them at 1am luckily I ended up ok after two weeks in the hospital but I know I'm lucky!

Dr. Sahm performed a laproscopic gallbladder removal for me on 2/25/2016. Her professionalism, compassion and awesome bedside manner put me at ease quickly. I knew I was in excellent hands. Following the procedure, I had very minimal pain and was able to walk from the OR stretcher to my bed without discomfort. I was traveling on business when this all happened and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thank you!

Dr. Sahm says...

I am a native Delawarean trained in minimally invasive surgery and general surgery. I have sought out further training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine and am certified in wound care. I served two tours as a forward surgeon in Iraq in 2008 and 2010. I am a participating breast surgeon at the Helen Graham Cancer Center. I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families and caring for their surgical needs.
