Dr. Bryan Anderson - General surgery specialist at Gritman General Surgeons
Bryan Anderson, MD, FACS General Surgeon

Since beginning practice in 1999, Dr. Anderson’s specialties have encompassed everything from acute care, trauma surgery at Idaho’s largest trauma center, colorectal, endocrine, endoscopy as well as minimally invasive techniques for surgeries including hernia, upper GI and reflux disease. He’s joining us from Idaho’s Treasure Valley, where he held admitting privileges with both major Boise-area hospital systems—St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center.

His appointment at Gritman is a return to Moscow for Dr. Anderson, who received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Idaho before attending medical school at the University of Arizona and a general surgery residency at Michigan State University.

As a surgeon, I love to operate, I love to see patients’ lives improved, take care of acute problems for them, that’s something I’ve always enjoyed.Dr. Bryan Anderson

Brian Newell, MD General Surgeon

Dr. Newell lived in the Northwest and West most of his life prior to starting his medical training, where he helped foster a love of the outdoors and activities like hunting, biking, baseball and pickleball. Other interests include home renovation and singing as a family.

Dr. Newell comes to Gritman from Pennsylvania, where he recently completed a residency program as Chief Resident in General Surgery from Wellspan York Hospital, a Johns Hopkins affiliate in pediatric and transplant surgeries.

He is returning to the region after amassing more than 1,500 surgery cases during his career, including hundreds of endoscopes.

I chose to be a true general surgeon able to take care of the broad surgical needs of a community, I look forward to lifelong learning and getting continued training in whatever needs my community has.Dr. Brian Newell

Palouse Surgery Center

Palouse Surgery Center

Our ambulatory surgery center may be an option for your procedure.

Not all surgeries need to be performed in the hospital. Our ambulatory surgery center in Moscow may be a more convenient and lower-cost option for your care if your procedure does not require inpatient care. Learn more about the services provided at the Palouse Surgery Center and ask your surgeon if having your procedure there is right for you.

Hernias

A person with a hernia often feels pain, pressure, or burning or feels like something has given way.
There are several types of hernias:

  • A femoral hernia appears as a bulge on the top of the thigh.
  • A hiatal hernia is a part of the stomach bulging up through the diaphragm (the wall of muscle that separates the abdominal cavity from the chest cavity).
  • An incisional hernia occurs after surgery to the wall of the abdomen.
  • An inguinal hernia occurs when a small portion of the bowel or other tissue bulges into the groin.
  • An umbilical hernia appears in the belly button. A periumbilical hernia is similar to an umbilical hernia, but it occurs next to the belly button.
  • A person with a hernia often feels pain, pressure, or burning or feels like something has given way.
