Cooley Dickinson Welcomes General Surgeon Dr. Eric Stanelle

NORTHAMPTON — Dr. Eric Stanelle has joined Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Surgical Care and the medical staff of Cooley Dickinson Hospital.

Stanelle earned a doctorate of medicine from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. He completed general surgical residency programs at University of California San Francisco, East Bay, and Massachusetts General Hospital, and completed surgical-oncology and pediatric-surgery research fellowships at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His medical interests include minimally invasive/laparoscopy surgery for colon and rectal cancer; surgical oncology; endocrine surgery; and diseases of the liver, pancreas, and bile ducts.

“Since the start of my medical education, I wanted to establish a broad-based general-surgery practice to benefit the local community,” said Stanelle, who joins Dr. Holly Michaelson at Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Surgical Care. “Although I have been blessed to receive my training in metropolitan areas at some of the most premier hospitals in the country, I am most excited about being able to bring the top-notch surgical treatments that I learned in San Francisco, New York City, and Boston to the people of the Pioneer Valley.

Added Stanelle, “I believe that patients should not have to drive hours to the nearest biggest city in order to receive excellent medical and surgical care. My goal is to partner with each patient to promote his or her optimal health. As a general surgeon, I am equipped to treat a variety of surgical issues.”

Stanelle welcomes new patients at 76 Carlon Dr., Northampton. For more information, call (413) 584-4637.
