Eric Murray: General surgeon attracted to Grand County lifestyle, we benefit

It’s always such a pleasure for me to inform Grand County about hospital services that make health care more convenient. I especially like to tout the great visiting specialty physicians who are so often well-respected and renown in their field of practice.

Not all small communities are as fortunate as we are to have the privilege of hosting such fine specialists. The life-style of Grand County is the driving factor for having these professionals visit us. In the case of Edward Medina, General Surgeon, skiing and escaping the city every month to the beautiful views seen on the drive are reasons to reach out to us.

Dr. Medina is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and a member of the Denver Academy of Surgery. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biology at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif. He attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. And now he is making his services available at Kremmling Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinic.

Experience counts with anyone in any field, especially in general surgery with so many dynamics and individual issues involved. Dr. Medina has experience utilizing both traditional and advanced laparoscopic techniques to best accommodate each particular case. Many procedures are done right in the office or, conveniently, next door at the hospital. Here’s a quick list of some of the more common procedures Dr. Medina conducts in Kremmling:

– Wound care

– Hemorrhoids

– Basic anorectal surgery

– Minor skin lesions

– Hernia repair

– Gallbladder removal

– Pilonidal cyst

– Abscesses

– Varicose vein resection

– Varicose vein injection

– Breast biopsy

– Lumpectomy

– Mastectomy

– Thyroidectomy

– Lipoma removal

– Endocrine surgery

– Vasectomy

– Tubal Ligation

Bedside manner is always stressed as an important factor in dealing with a physician. For Dr. Medina, a philosophy of care based on collaboration with the patient is key. He is known for a low-key, personal style that conveys his deep compassion and extensive medical knowledge.

For more information regarding Dr. Medina, available general surgery and procedures and available consultation dates contact the specialty clinic at Kremmling Memorial Hospital, (970) 724-3115.
