    General surgeon joins Rome Medical Practice Surgical Specialists at its new Griffiss location

    Rome Medical Practice Surgical Specialists has opened a second location at Griffiss Business & Technology Park where board certified general surgeon Keneth Hall, MD, FACS, FASMBS is accepting new patients.

    “When Dr. Hall provided temporary surgical coverage at Rome Memorial Hospital last year, everyone was so impressed by his expertise and his patient-centered manner that we encouraged him to join our practice,” said Rome Medical Practice Administrator Lisa Taurisano, MHA, BSN, RN. “Dr. Hall is a highly skilled and compassionate general surgeon.”

    Dr. Hall will perform a broad range of surgical procedures at Rome Memorial Hospital, including minimally invasive hernia repairs, cholecystectomies, anti-reflux procedures, and placement of gastric pacemakers to treat gastroparesis. As an experienced bariatric surgeon, Dr. Hall has the expertise to perform general surgical procedures on overweight patients, as well as patients who have surgical needs after weight loss surgery.

    Dr. Hall was drawn to medicine because he witnessed family members with chronic illnesses suffer unnecessarily. “I see my patients as an extension of my family and I want only the best for members of my family,” he said. If you can put yourself in the patient’s shoes, you’re more sensitive to what they’re going through.”

    Dr. Hall takes the time to help patients understand their health condition and the treatment options available so they can come to agreement on the best approach for their problem.

    Dr. Hall earned his medical degree at Howard University College of Medicine, Washington, D.C., in 2005. He completed his general surgery internship and residency at SUNY Stony Brook Medical Center. Committed to being on the leading edge of surgical advances, Dr. Hall has completed numerous specialized certifications. He was a research fellow at the NYU Winthrop Hospital, where he completed additional training in minimally invasive, bariatric and robotic surgery.

    He is board certified by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

    “I am pleased to be joining Rome Memorial Hospital, which has been recognized as a quality leader in protecting patients from surgical infections,” Dr. Hall said. According to the New York State Department of Health, Rome has the lowest surgical site infection ratio in the region. Its ratio has been better than the state ratio for nine consecutive years.

    Rome Medical Practice Surgical Specialists opened its second office at 267 Avery Lane, Suite 300, at the Griffiss Business & Technology Park in Rome. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Hall, please call the office at 315.356.7770.
