About

Bio

I graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1994, then completed a General Surgery Residency in 1999 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, followed by a Fellowship in Colon and Rectal Surgery in 2000 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I am now in partnership in a private practice in Glendale and Phoenix, AZ. I specialize in diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. Colon cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in the US and 2nd leading cause of cancer death. It is preventable with screening -- the colonoscopy. The standard surgical approach in most cases of colon cancer is minimally invasive, or laparoscopic surgery. I also treat diseases of the anus, including hemorrhoids, pain, infection, and control issues.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 40-year-old female asked:
Dr. Debora McClary
General Surgery 28 years experience
Abd pain and nausea: If you are thinking about suicide and have a plan in mind to harm yourself, get medical help now. The above may be related to your intestinal tract. There is a strong mind-body influence on how this system works, and anxiety causes the intestinal tract to function improperly. So yes, it's possible the suicidal anxiety could cause these symptoms. See a doctor asap for an exam for other causes.
A 29-year-old female asked:
Dr. Debora McClary

Pain in right abdome: The right upper abdomen contains several organs including the liver, right adrenal gland, kidney, part of the stomach, the duodenum, part of the colon. Any of these organs could contribute to these symptoms. See your doctor. After taking a history and examining you, they will likely order blood work and check some tests that could include a ct scan, UGI endoscopy, colonoscopy, and x-rays.
A 60-year-old female asked:
Dr. Debora McClary
General Surgery 28 years experience
The test: Those two dilated ducts come together in the head of your pancreas near a structure called the ampulla. Fine anatomy in this area cannot be seen on a ct scan or MRI scan. For the test you will be heavily sedated. The doc will put a endoscope with an ultrasound imager to look at the fine details. You will be out. Could be scar from past pancreatitis, or a mass, a tumor or cancer.
