Philosophy of Care
My philosophy of care is to treat every patient how I would want my own family treated. I believe that each patient deserves to be taken care of with compassion, respect, and a commitment to deliver the best care possible. I am dedicated to providing a multidisciplinary approach for my patients bringing together the vast resources of the UC Davis Health System to formulate a shared, patient-centered plan. There is no “simple” operation when you are the patient.
Dr. Campbell is a fellowship-trained endocrine surgeon who specializes in the surgical treatment of patients with thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreatic disorders. He is an expert in minimally invasive parathyroid and thyroid surgery as well as complex laparoscopic adrenal surgery. He offers a wide range of unique services including transabdominal laparoscopic adrenalectomy; minimally invasive and reoperative thyroid and parathyroid surgery; lymph node dissection using blue dye localization; and ethanol ablation of recurrent thyroid cancer.
Dr. Campbell’s research interests include improving multidisciplinary care for endocrine patients; patient outcomes following thyroid surgery; recurrent and persistent hyperparathyroidism; and familial endocrine disorders (such as multiple endocrine neoplasia).
