Dr. Pozzessere's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pozzessere "Anthony Pozzessere was raised in the coal-mining region of northeastern Pennsylvania. During his youth, he developed a strong work ethic while playing multiple sports and in his studies. He graduated from Hazleton Area High School with highest honors and as captain of the varsity baseball team. After high school, he moved to Philadelphia to attend Saint Joseph's University on an academic scholarship. He graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in Health Care Ethics. During his time at St. Joe's, he also worked in the Service-Learning Department, where he developed a commitment to serving others, and participated in multiple service immersion trips to impoverished regions of Appalachia, a Native American reservation in New Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. He decided to stay in Philadelphia to pursue his medical degree at Jefferson Medical College. He maintained his commitment to service throughout his time at Jefferson, volunteering at JeffHOPE's street-side clinics for homeless Philadelphians. With a small group of classmates, he also founded a medical student organization helping refugees navigate the health care system, which has since blossomed into a multifaceted project, including student-run free clinics. Dr. Pozzessere moved to California to complete his residency in general surgery at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. During his time in Santa Barbara, he developed a strong interest in minimally invasive and complex gastrointestinal surgery and decided to pursue fellowship training in Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey. In fellowship, he gained extensive training in laparoscopy and robotic surgery, treating benign and malignant diseases of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and intestines, as well as repair and reconstruction of abdominal wall and inguinal hernias. Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing guitar, and collecting vinyl records."
