Mark Versnick

Mission & Approach

“Throughout my life, helping others has always brought me the most satisfaction. Growing up I was drawn to medicine for this very reason. I aspired to help people improve the quality and length of their lives which led to a career in surgery. Surgery is a definitive treatment. Where possible, it can remove disease leaving the patient an opportunity to recover completely and move forward with their life.

In contrast, I also have enjoyed coaching people in their darkest times through situations that seem anything but definitive. Often, a single surgical solution is not all it takes. In these instances I assume the role of educator, helping a patient understand their condition, prognosis, treatment options and possible path forward.

I was trained as a general surgeon and then continued into a fellowship in endocrine surgery. For me, education is how I continue to learn and improve my skills every year. I regularly attend conferences and educational opportunities to update my knowledge. I strive to master new treatments and techniques to help more patients. In recent years I have added advanced wound care and certification in robotic surgery to my practice. I am always looking for ways to innovate and stay on the leading edge of surgery.

I want your decision to come to Wilmington Surgical Associates to be a comfortable and confident one. I am dedicated to surgical excellence in your diagnosis, treatment and follow up. I have been blessed with a wonderful family and will treat you the way I would want my family treated. That’s what I would want from my surgeon, and what you may expect from me.”
