As general surgeons trained to serve in a rural setting, we offer many types of procedures including hernia repair, gallbladder surgery, and emergency surgeries such as appendectomy. At their core, all hospitals need a general surgery staff in order to function. We have full-time general surgeons providing services at Krohn Clinic. Our surgeons bring big city experience to our small town, so that our patients don’t have to travel far and wide to obtain surgical services.
We perform many additional advanced, minimally invasive surgeries, such as hysterectomy, reflux surgery and more. A simple discussion with your primary care provider will educate you about what can be done locally here at Krohn Clinic. As always, we treat our patients as our own family and enjoy working and living in such a great community.

We have a skilled and experienced support staff for a friendly and welcoming endoscopy experience.
