Medical Interests

Minimally invasive surgical options allow Dr. Mansfield’s patients to recover quickly. His patients experience less pain, shorter recoveries and more dramatic, positive outcomes. Although each surgery is challenging, Dr. Mansfield is rewarded by seeing his patients return to their favorite activities.

Medical Philosophy

Dr. Mansfield’s ultimate goal is to help his patients feel better and return to their regular life as quickly as possible. His patients benefit from his great care and the partnership he forms with them. The partnership allows Dr. Mansfield and his patients to mutually discuss the surgery options to decide on the best option for each individual. His patients benefit from this open communication and understanding about the problem, what is causing the issue and treatment options.

Personal Interests

During his free time, Dr. Mansfield participates in Doctors Without Borders, an organization that is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis. Personally, he enjoys spending time outdoors mountain biking, fishing and gardening, as well as woodcarving.

About General Surgeons

A surgeon specializing in general surgery focuses on abdominal organs and their diseases: esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix, spleen and thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. They also perform vasectomies and deal with diseases involving the skin, breast and hernias. Their wide variety of surgical expertise proves to be a competitive, rewarding and demanding specialty in its own right.
