Surgical Specialists expanding to Mint Hill

Surgical Specialists of Charlotte has expanded its services to the Mint Hill area.

The move coincides with the opening of the Mint Hill Medical Center earlier this month.

On Oct. 15, the company began offering general surgery, surgical oncology and colorectal surgery services at its new office in the medical center’s building at 8201 Healthcare Loop, Suite 202 in Mint Hill, according to a news release.

“There are 30 surgeons in our group and we provide surgical services to all the hospitals in the region, including South Carolina,” Dr. Louis Zbinden, president of Surgical Specialists of Charlotte, said.

Since they are committed to providing surgery services to the population of Charlotte and the surrounding region, they felt that with the opening of the new hospital, it would be a great opportunity to begin providing services to people in the area, Zbinden said.
