One of the Best Colon Doctors McKinney, TX, has Ever Encountered

Her practice spans a full of range of colorectal disorders, with a primary focus on minimally invasive abdominal surgery, both in laparoscopic and robotic procedures. Dr. Novosad’s primary interest is in colon and rectal cancer, and she also provides treatment of diverticulitis, anorectal diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, fissures and fistulas, in-office treatment of hemorrhoids, as well as colonoscopy. Additional training also includes treatment for incontinence with the sacral nerve stimulator. Dr. Novosad has also recently added advanced robotic surgery training with the da Vinci® Surgical System to her list of minimally invasive approaches to colorectal disorders.

Dr. Novosad serves as chief of surgery and medical director of surgical services at Baylor McKinney.

My experience with Dr. Novosad has been positive. She is thorough in explaining the situation, while maintaining a pleasant attitude. She listens well which is a rarity among physicians these days.
