(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Julie A. Conyers, MD, has joined PeaceHealth Medical Group's General Surgery at PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center. A general surgeon with more than 20-years’ experience, Dr. Conyers says she chose to specialize in general surgery after she “fell in love with it” during her third year of residency. Her practice encompasses a wide range of procedures but she has particular expertise in advanced laparoscopic procedures for breast cancer surgery.

“Working with patients to together make the best decisions about their care,” is Dr. Conyers’ philosophy and she “looks forward to meeting other providers in the community and getting to know them as they entrust their patients to my care.”

Dr. Conyers most recently served as vice chief of staff for Tahoe Forest Multispecialty Clinic in Truckee California. She was also in private practice in California, Idaho, and Colorado and was Chief of Surgery at Saint Luke’s McCall Hospital in McCall, Idaho.

Dr. Conyers received her undergraduate degree from Colorado State University in Fort Collins and her medical degree from the University of Colorado, School of Medicine in Denver. She also completed her residency in Denver at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital where she was named Most Outstanding Intern.

In addition to her medical training, Dr. Conyers has also received a Physician Executive M.B.A. in Healthcare, having completed her Masters of Business Administration with honors at the University of Tennesse.

Dr. Conyers and her husband Buddy have two children, a son who is working towards his PhD in aeronautical engineering, and a daughter who is skier in Colorado. Dr. Conyers says her “happiest days are the days she is in the operating room caring for patients.”
