Welcome to the Surgical Practice
of Dr. Gene Branum
Sun Valley’s Choice for Surgery and Endoscopy
I trained at Duke University and spent eight years on a top-tier university medical faculty, but my philosophy of caring for patients arises out of growing up in a loving home environment and taking care of friends and working folks in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia for 17 years. I approach every patient as I would a family member. Whatever I would do in the best interest of my mom, dad, grandparents, wife, or children is what I will do for you. I pray every day for the wisdom to do what is best for all my patients.
My decisions about your care are based in the science of surgery and nearly 30 years of surgical practice. You are likely to bring your own research and questions and I welcome your input and knowledge. As a small practice we can often see you the same or next day, and almost always the same week and are very flexible in scheduling to fit your needs.
