Our Practice

At Great Lakes Surgical Associates, our mission is to provide our patients with state-of-the-art surgical care in a comfortable, compassionate environment. With more than 30 combined years of treating the surgical needs of patients in Central Michigan, we at Great Lakes Surgical Associates have perfected our method of treating patients. We believe that our patients should be well informed. Having surgery is a stressful event and we believe that by taking the time to educate you about your condition and about your surgical options, we can lessen some of this stress. You may then proceed, feeling confident that you have made the best decision for yourself.

Great Lakes Surgical Associates has three office locations in Alma, Michigan, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and Clare, Michigan for your convenience. Additionally, our surgeons have privileges at MidMichigan Center - Gratiot, Clare Mid-Michigan Hospital - Clare and MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland.

Specializing in minimally invasive solutions to common surgical problems, Great Lakes Surgical Associates will provide you with personalized, compassionate care. GLSA provides expertise in surgery of the breast, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, skin cancer, tumors of the soft tissue, endocrine tumors, as well as laparoscopic surgery for acid reflux, hernias, and weight loss procedures.

We are also leaders in the laser treatment of varicose veins. Outpatient, minimally invasive techniques are offered for Varicose Veins and treatment of Venous Stasis Disease.

Stereotactic, Ultra-Sound Guided Mammotome, and Sentinel Node Biopsy’s are utilized for the diagnosis of patients with diseases of the breast or breast cancer. These technologically advanced techniques are designed to detect problems sooner than ever before, and greatly minimize discomfort and disfigurement while maximizing your result.
