The surgery program at Community Memorial Hospital is expanding and now includes six surgeons who specialize in the fields of general surgery, orthopaedics and gynecology.

The hospital's three general surgeons include Dr. Brance Modin, who has been at CMH for 20 years; Dr. Steve Vopat, who has been practicing at the hospital for 10 years; and Dr. Jim Ryan, who joined the group in 2005.

The recent construction at CMH resulted in a doubling of the number of surgical suites and endoscopy suites.

Modin said he is proud to be a part of the department that has seen such growth over the past two decades.

"Having two high quality general surgeons as partners is a godsend for me and our patients," commented Modin.

The general surgeons perform a full spectrum of procedures and are minimally invasive, when possible.

The Orthopaedic Surgery Department includes Dr. Timothy McLeod and Dr. Mark Gregerson. McLeod has been on staff at CMH for five years and specializes in general orthopaedics and sports medicine. Gregerson joined the orthopaedic program in January.

Dr. Skott Nielsen is an OB/GYN physician who directs the comprehensive Women's Health Services at CMH. His specialty includes general gynecology surgery, as well as surgical procedures for urinary incontinence.

The CHM Surgery Department has it all: high quality surgeons and anesthesia staff with experienced and caring nursing personnel, all in a state-of-the-art facility.
