General surgeon joins Rome medical team

Rome Medical Practice Surgical Specialists recently opened a second location at Griffiss Business & Technology Park, where board-certified general surgeon Keneth Hall 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.

Hall will perform a broad range of surgical procedures at RMH, including minimally invasive hernia repairs, cholecystectomies, anti-reflux procedures, and placement of gastric pacemakers to treat gastroparesis.

As an experienced bariatric surgeon, Hall has the expertise to perform general surgical procedures on overweight patients, as well as patients who have surgical needs after weight loss surgery.

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, 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.
