Surgicalists are general surgeons who work only in the hospital and are immediately available to respond to patients who are brought into the emergency with an urgent surgical condition.
When a patient comes through the ER needing urgent general surgery, they will be cared for by a surgicalist who will follow them through their hospital stay and also see them after their hospital discharge for a post-operative follow-up visit every Friday in their office located in the CRMC Professional Office Building, Suite 102, located at 145 West 4th Street in Cookeville, TN.
The surgicalists will keep the patient’s primary care physician informed about the surgical care provided for his or her patient and arrange for any specialty care, therapy or consultations with other specialists. They will then transition the patient’s medical care back to the patient’s primary provider, or to another specialty physician if needed, who will manage the medical treatment after discharge from the hospital.
Surgicalists on staff at Cookeville Regional are Terah C. Isaacson, MD, Chinmay S. Majmundar, MD, Brandon R. Fadner, MD.
