Dr. Cerame's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cerame "I am a Master Surgeon (formerly called General Surgeon) of 30 years, who was broadly trained across the spectrum of general surgery and have maintained these skills throughout my career. I started my practice as a partner in a private practice but made a location change in 2004 wherein I shifted to the employment model. This gave me an opportunity to focus my attention on patient care and less on the business aspects of private practice. As a result of two spine surgeries, I have recently slowed down to spend time with my grandkids. I fill in for other general surgeons who need some time off and want their patients to have the best possible care in their absence."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cerame "My desire is to help individuals with surgical illnesses heal themselves through the use of my specialty.

It is my goal to treat my patients the way I would want to be teated."
