About

Bio

Board certified in general surgery and critical care and cosmetic surgery. I completed my training at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio and my fellowship at The Ohio Sate University. We, myself and my husband Dr. Chris Ibikunle, moved to Georgia, and now own our practice and a surgery center where we can perform multiple outpatient procedures. Specialize in robotic, lapariscopic, endoscopic procedures. Interest in colorectal disease. Treat GERD, hiatal hernias and many more disorders. My last fellowship and board certification allows me to work with patients after weight loss or other issues, to remove access skin, do mommy makeovers, and much more.

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.
