Bryan Anderson, MD, FACS

Education: University of Arizona Medical Center
Residency: Michigan State University - Kalamazoo
Internship: Michigan State University - Kalamazoo
Specialties: General Surgery
Special practice interests: Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery, Thyroid/Parathyroid
Care philosophy: "Over the course of my career I have found that patients are most thankful for the education provided them as part of their surgical care experience. Understanding their medical problem as it applies to surgery and what can be done to treat it is of the greatest value to the patient. By taking the time to communicate the knowledge and information the patient needs, allows them to make informed decisions regarding their surgical care and choices. Sometimes this choice is to not perform surgery when the patient may be best served with a medical or nonsurgical treatment. Even though there have been big changes in healthcare, I strive to make the patient-physician relationship the center of my practice while providing the most up-to-date surgical treatments available."

This fighting spirit is something I have come to admire and value daily in my work. A large part of the reason that I was attracted to the field of surgery is that surgery provides me with the ability to offer the patients I care for both compassion and a practical solution. Breast cancer care engages with these core principles that attracted me to surgery. I am able to develop unique personal relationships with my patients, learn what is important to them in their care and then build a treatment plan that will provide them the best treatment available while taking into consideration the values that are important to them."
