Dr. Fullington joined the Boston Hernia team in 2021, adding specialized expertise in laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Fullington trained and worked as a general surgeon for 5 years before choosing to focus her practice on the care of hernia and gallbladder patients. In many disciplines, tens of thousands of hours of deliberate practice are required to develop and maintain expertise. Laparoscopic surgery is no different. As an expert laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Fullington continues to perform many laparoscopic hernia and gallbladder operations. This allows her refine her skills on an ongoing basis. As the newest surgeon in Boston Hernia, we are delighted to add laparoscopic cholecystectomy to the procedures that we can offer in our ambulatory practice.
