Our new general surgeons, Dr. Bryan Anderson and Dr. Brian Newell, are eager to provide an increased variety of general surgery options for Palouse-area patients, so members of the community don’t feel like they have to turn to far-away institutions to get the same care that’s provided in our community.
Since beginning practice in 1999, Dr. Anderson’s specialties have encompassed everything from acute care, trauma surgery at Idaho’s largest trauma center, colorectal, endocrine, endoscopy as well as minimally invasive techniques for surgeries including hernia, upper GI and reflux disease. He’s joining us from Idaho’s Treasure Valley, where he held admitting privileges with both major Boise-area hospital systems—St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center.
His appointment at Gritman is a return to Moscow for Dr. Anderson, who received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Idaho before attending medical school at the University of Arizona and a general surgery residency at Michigan State University.
Dr. Newell lived in the Northwest and West most of his life prior to starting his medical training, where he helped foster a love of the outdoors and activities like hunting, biking, baseball and pickleball. Other interests include home renovation and singing as a family.
Dr. Newell comes to Gritman from Pennsylvania, where he recently completed a residency program as Chief Resident in General Surgery from Wellspan York Hospital, a Johns Hopkins affiliate in pediatric and transplant surgeries.
He is returning to the region after amassing more than 1,500 surgery cases during his career, including hundreds of endoscopes.
A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Greg Bauer is one of four anesthesia providers at Gritman Medical Center, and one of three on the team who hold national certification in Non-Surgical Pain Management. That means he’s ensuring a patient’s heart rate, respiration and other vital signs are met throughout a procedure when they are most likely unconscious or without feeling in a portion of their body.Learn More About Anesthesia
Our ambulatory surgery center may be an option for your procedure.
Not all surgeries need to be performed in the hospital. Our ambulatory surgery center in Moscow may be a more convenient and lower-cost option for your care if your procedure does not require inpatient care.
