About Us

Doctors Gochnour and Williams are board certified by the American Board of Surgeons and are fellows of the American College of Surgeons. They provide the full spectrum of general surgical services with a focus on advanced robotic surgery and minimally invasive surgery so that their patients experience a rapid recovery and are able to return to full lives as quickly as possible. Dr. Williams has a special focus in comprehensive breast cancer care, and is actively involved from diagnosis through definitive therapy and surveillance. Dr. Gochnour specialises in surgical weight loss, metabolic surgery, and anti-reflux surgery.  They are the only independent surgical practice in the Brazos Valley and are able to serve their community not just as doctors, but as neighbours. They strive to create personalised plans for their patients, while building genuine relationships in order to help encourage each individual through the changes and challenges encountered when they require surgical care.
