At our General and Vascular Surgery Elkhart clinic, it’s equally important to our patients to have compassionate, understanding, and comprehensive care.

The physician-owned GVS team is dedicated to providing personalized treatment, with a 4.89 score out of 5.0 patient satisfaction across Google, Facebook and Surveys. From bariatric surgery to skin-sparing mastectomies, pediatric surgery, and more, our Elkhart clinic is known for diverse and advanced surgical methods and top-quality services. 

Three GVS Services that Require Sensitivity and Compassion

Elkhart residents choose GVS for more than our modern, comfortable, and inviting office. One of the aspects of our Elkhart clinic that our patients appreciate most, is knowing they can put their physical and emotional vulnerability in the skilled and practiced hands of GVS surgeons.

Take a look at three areas that reflect the attentiveness, kindness, and expertise that Elkhart surgeons provide:
