The Koffrons bring a unique set of skills and collaboration to surgery in Chattanooga. Their combination of education and expertise is a game-changer for people who need advanced cancer-fighting surgeries and treatments for the liver, pancreas and biliary system.
“We work together like two sides of the same coin, each focusing on different aspects of HPB surgery,” says Dr. Alan Koffron. “We provide highly individualized treatment and often offer surgical options to patients who have previously been told there’s nothing more that can be done. Knowing our respective areas of expertise, we defer to each other’s medical judgment and work together in both treatment planning as well as in surgery to provide a nuanced and researched approach to complex cases.”
“This is exciting progress for Chattanooga – there are no liver or kidney transplant or pancreatic cancer procedures that require a drive to another major medical center. The most advanced treatments and capabilities are here now. I’m confident that Dr. Alan Koffron and Dr. Julie Koffron will continue to provide the safe, high quality care our patients have come to expect from USA,” says Dr. Greer.
“Our focus has always been to provide the highest level of care for our patients, taking the whole person into account, and offering minimally invasive options when possible to help people recover from surgery faster and have the best possible outcomes,” says Dr. Julie Koffron. “There is a sense of collegiality and professionalism that’s evident in the culture at USA, and we’re all working toward a common goal. I believe the very strong foundation of quality will ease our transition into practice in Chattanooga and allow us to quickly fill a need in this community.”
