WRMC welcomes new surgeon

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Gary L. Bebow, Administrator/CEO of White River Medical Center (WRMC), is pleased to welcome Dr. Anthony M. Abraham, General Surgeon, to the Medical Staff. Dr. Abraham is seeing patients at the WRMC Surgery Clinic, located at 413 Virginia Drive in Batesville. Also practicing in the clinic is General Surgeon, Dr. John Lambert.

General Surgeons are physicians who operate to repair injuries, correct deformities, prevent diseases, and generally improve the health of patients. They examine patients to determine if surgery is necessary and select the appropriate surgical procedure. Dr. Abraham's expertise and interests include breast cancer surgery, thyroid surgery, and abdominal surgery using minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. Dr. Abraham also accepts referrals for screen colonoscopy and EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) used to detect colon cancer and illnesses of the gastrointestinal tract.

Dr. Abraham received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Florida. He completed his residency at Larkin Community Hospital, also in Florida, where he was named Chief Resident. During his time there, he also won several distinguished awards in Surgical Research.

"Dr. Abraham possesses great knowledge and experience in his skill," said Bebow. "He collaborates well with our excellent team of Surgeons, and we are excited he is here."

Dr. Abraham and his wife, Natalia, reside in Batesville, and are expecting their first child in January.

"I really enjoy practicing in Batesville," said Dr. Abraham. "This is a wonderful community dedicated to its people, and my wife and I are thrilled to be a part of it!"

He enjoys golf, outdoor biking, indoor spinning, and looks forward to hunting and fishing.
