Sometimes medical problems require more serious intervention, including surgery. That’s why Franklin Medical Center is proud to have Dr. David Gutierrez. A board-certified general surgeon is a critical need in any area, but especially in rural communities like our own.
Dr. Gutierrez offers a number of treatments and care options not available in other areas such as surgery to resolve acid reflux, high-definition manometry studies, and other advanced, minimally-invasive procedures.
In addition, Franklin Medical Center was the first Louisiana hospital north of Alexandria to offer the Linx procedure, which is a cutting edge, low-risk surgical implant that remedies gastric reflux. For those who have suffered harm to their esophagus due to acid reflux, we are also proud to be the only hospital in North Louisiana outside of Shreveport that offers Radio Frequency Ablations to reduce and eliminate the damage done.
With the skills and experience to serve our region, Dr. Gutierrez is an invaluable asset to our facility and our community. Dr. Gutierrez is a veteran and a pilot. He lives in our community and is engaged with small-town life and people. His presence insures that our citizens will not have to look beyond our own community for the finest in surgical care. Dr. Gutierrez offers a number of treatments and care options not available in other areas such as surgery to resolve acid reflux, high-definition manometry studies, and other advanced, minimally-invasive procedures.
