“While I was initially attracted to surgery because of its technical and challenging nature, the real reward — and the part that’s most compelling — is being able to help improve people’s lives. In many cases, the improvement is substantial. In all cases, my mission is to provide the very best care that’s available today, from the most minimally invasive techniques to an uncommon level of personal accessibility and commitment.

“In my experience, the way to be of most benefit to those facing surgery is to be completely present, with experienced surgical skill, state-of-the-art capabilities and an unwavering focus on doing what is in their best interests. This is an interactive undertaking, and it demands my full involvement and dedication to each patient. We’re carrying on a long tradition of surgical excellence here.”

Wilmington patients tell their stories.

Your staff was great, and Dr. Eskew’s PA was really fantastic, but Dr. Eskew was really great and we were so impressed when he called us personally with my husband’s test results…that speaks volumes about him! I cannot say enough wonderful things about him to express our gratitude except Thank You So Much!!!    – Milli S.

I loved Dr. Eskew and his entire team. They are compassionate, understanding and great listeners. Dr. Eskew is a terrific surgeon.    – Kathleen L.

My visit today was great! Dr. Eskew did a procedure on my legs which went very well. He gave me instructions what to do when I got home which I did. Dr. Eskew is an excellent surgeon and his bedside manner is wonderful! I would recommend any of my family members and friends to Wilmington Surgical Associates.    – Margaret P.
