The general surgeons at Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC) provide compassionate and high quality care for a broad spectrum of surgical conditions in Middle Tennessee. All of our surgeons are board certified or board eligible by either the American Board of Surgery or American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.
In 2008, we helped establish the Comprehensive Breast Center at MMC to provide a wide range of services for breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment. Our surgeons perform minimally invasive breast biopsies to allow for earlier diagnosis, preservation of breast tissue, and less recovery time. For the treatment of breast cancer, we perform the full breadth of breast cancer surgeries and can place catheters for partial breast irradiation.
For procedures involving the gastrointestinal tract and abdominal wall, we offer minimally invasive procedures when possible. Our surgeons are skilled in laparoscopic procedures and were some of the first surgeons in Middle Tennessee to use the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System when we began to offer these procedures in 2010. The robotic system allows for the surgeon to have an increased level of precision and control. It is primarily used for colectomies, hernia repairs, and anti-reflux surgery. Recovery time and scarring is reduced with either laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
At MMC, our general surgeons seek to individualize the surgical care for our patients and maintain the best and most efficacious techniques.
