“When medically possible, I’m a firm believer in the trial of non-operative care prior to proceeding with surgery. This patient-centric approach, in many instances, leads to relief in anxiety, symptoms and alleviates the need for surgery. My goal with every patient is to present all the options and treatments for their condition. As your surgeon, we’ll develop a plan together with which you are comfortable. A well-informed patient and excellent communication, paired with first-class surgical care, results in unparalleled patient outcomes. It is my commitment to all patients that they are afforded the best outcome possible.”
Dr. Faught offers care and treatment for a variety of medical conditions including benign and malignant skin lesions; diseases of the colon and rectum; as well as diseases of the stomach, small intestine, colon, gallbladder and appendix.
