Dr. Michael Genz is a board-certified general surgeon specializing in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic anti-reflux, esophageal, gastrointestinal, colon, hernia and endocrine surgery.
Dr. Genz’s goal is to improve each patient’s quality of life by providing exceptional care. His approach to surgery is simple; he says, “I always ask myself what would I do if this were a member of my own family?” He believes that
in order to be successful in surgery, the surgeon has to develop a strong personal relationship with each and every patient. By connecting with his patients in this way, he believes he is then able to better guide them through their surgical experience
while empowering them to live healthier and happier lives.
In addition to his unique fellowship training, Dr. Genz also has extensive experience treating patients with diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, breast as well as intra-abdominal solid organs such as the gallbladder, spleen and adrenal glands.
Outside of the office, Dr. Genz enjoys traveling and discovering new restaurants with his wife, mountain biking, and taking care of his 7 pound Chihuahua. He also enjoys making a difference in his community and lending a helping hand whenever he can.
