Joel Johnson, M.D.
  Robotic General Surgeon 

Dr. David McEachin and Dr. Joel Johnson are two of only three robotic general surgeons in the area performing single-site gallbladder removal.  Using the da Vinci robotic platform, Dr. McEachin and Dr. Johnson can remove the gallbladder through only one small incision in the navel (belly button).  

Dr. McEachin is also one of only two robotic general surgeons in the region using da Vinci for precision colorectal procedures.   The da Vinci system provides Dr. McEachin greater dexterity and control for the surgical treatment of colorectal conditions, such as: colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease). Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy. Rectal cancer surgery is known as a low anterior resection.
