Winston Chan, MD is the newest member of Surgical Associates of Mansfield, part of Privia Medical Group - North Texas and brings his expertise in Colon and Rectal surgery to the group.

Dr. Chan received his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering at the University of California Berkeley. He continued on to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine where he obtained his medical degree. Afterwards, he moved to Texas for General Surgery residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, where he trained at the renowned high-volume tertiary care centers at the Texas Medical Center,

including Memorial Hermann Hospital and MD Anderson Cancer Center. He decided to further specialize in Colon and Rectal surgery after his clinical experiences at MD Anderson and moved to Dallas to complete his Colon and Rectal fellowship training at the Baylor University Medical Center.

Throughout his surgery training in Houston and Dallas, Dr. Winston Chan has been exposed to advanced medical technology and has incorporated this into his practice. His surgical interests include colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, benign colon and rectal disease, anorectal pathology, and use of minimally invasive surgery to improve surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction, including robotic surgery and incisionless transanal surgery. His extensive experience with the Da Vinci robotic platform allows him to treat complex disease processes through small incisions that would normally require a larger incision. Dr. Chan is board certified in General Surgery through the American Board of Surgery.

All patients requiring colorectal surgery should be offered a robotic surgery for improved outcomes, faster recovery, and fewer complications.

Dr. Chan met his wife in medical school, who is an MD specializing in Physical Medical and Rehabilitation, and they have two children. They have enjoyed living in Texas and plan to raise their kids here and settle here. In his spare time, he pursues athletic endeavors such as cycling and swimming with his wife and children.
