Doctors

Our surgeons are dedicated to delivering the highest quality, innovative, and safest surgical care available to our patients. We strongly believe in the application of minimally invasive techniques and approaches whenever indicated to aid in reduced pain, improved recovery, and superior cosmetic results. All surgeons are board certified or board eligible by the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Elariny has an excellent success rate in terms of patient outcome and satisfaction. Procedures are done laparoscopically, with the fewest incisions safely possible.
