- Dr. Williams is a general surgeon specializing in colonoscopies, esophagogastroduodenoscopy tests (EGD) and hernia repair. He is trained in the advanced technique known as totally extra peritoneal inguinal surgery (TEPP), a laparoscopic approach to repairing hernias that is less invasive and carries a lower risk of future complications.
