GREENFIELD – Savitri Rambissoon, MD, general surgeon, has recently joined Baystate Medical Practices – Greenfield Surgery.
A magna cum laude graduate of American University, with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Dr. Rambissoon completed her medical degree at McGill University Medical School, Montreal.
She completed her residency in General Surgery at Baystate Medical Center, the western campus of Tufts University Medical School. She is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons.
Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Rambissoon spent five years at Baystate Medical Center to complete her residency in general surgery.
She enjoyed her time in Springfield, and is delighted to return to western Massachusetts to continue her work. “I had five wonderful years of training at Baystate Medical Center, where I gained invaluable experience and was able to deepen my knowledge of surgical procedures.”
For the past several years, Dr. Rambissoon has been practicing in the Laconia, New Hampshire area. “In 2003 I moved to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire where I enjoyed a practice of doing a broad scope of surgery and endoscopy helping the local communities.”
Passionate about her medical field, Dr. Rambissoon specializes in performing laparoscopic surgeries for emergencies, such as gallbladders and appendixes, and bowel cases for colon cancers and diverticulitis.
She understands the discomfort and anxiety that may plague patients regarding surgical procedures and diagnoses, “Being a female surgeon, I have the ability to make some women feel a little more comfortable, especially when helping them deal with a new diagnosis of a breast lump or cancer and also providing the opportunity to have their colonoscopies done by another female.”
Outside the operating room, Dr. Rambissoon enjoys reading, spending time with her family outdoors, and traveling. She is excited to begin her new role with Baystate Medical Practices in Greenfield, “I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with local patients in order to discuss any of their concerns regarding surgical issues where I may be of help.”
