Welcome to the office of Drs. Sidney Stapleton, Scott Steinberg, Qammar Rashid and Julie McGill. Here at Emory at Decatur Specialty Surgery, we combine state-of the-art technology with years of experience in order to provide our patients with the best possible care. All of our physicians are board-certified Fellows of the American College of Surgeons. We have performed thousands of operations with outstanding results. Our surgeons have expertise in surgery for benign and malignant disease of the breast, thyroid, parathyroid, colon, and gallbladder using the minimally invasive approach. We also utilize minimally invasive techniques for the repair of various inguinal, ventral and hiatal hernias. We offer abdominal wall reconstruction for patients with multiple and/or recurrent abdominal wall hernias using abdominal wall advancement flaps and biologic mesh.
Our surgeons have developed a certified Center of Excellence for weight loss surgery and have performed over 1,500 laparoscopic gastric bypass and gastric banding procedures with outstanding results.
We offer same day appointments to any patient as needed and we can communicate in English, Spanish, and Farsi.
Our practice is aligned with Emory Decatur Hospital. This means that our patients are able to promptly obtain a full range of diagnostic tests, including infusion therapies, X-rays, CT scans, MRI and ultrasound at any of our facilities that are most convenient. When urgent medical care by another specialist is necessary, we are able to facilitate appointments and referrals for our patients to one of the more than 800 physicians on staff.
