ABOUT DR. MELCER

Dr. Melcer completed his postgraduate education in General Surgery at the University of Arizona in 1993 and has been caring for the people of Tucson for the last 25 years.

As a minimally invasive surgeon, Dr. Melcer is one of the most experienced robotic trained general surgeons in Pima County and serves as proctor to teaching those surgeons interested in learning robotic-assisted surgery. In addition to small incisions, less pain and quicker recoveries as seen with laparoscopic surgery, the benefits of robotic assisted surgery include enhanced visualization, increased dexterity, and greater surgical precision.

Great Doctor!

I recently moved to Arizona and was here for a month when I started getting sick. I went to Northwest Hospital ER and they admitted me. Thanks be to God that the Surgeon that was on duty was Dr. Melcer. He is a most wonderful person and a terrific Doctor. His bedside manner is absolutely calming and you can tell how much he cares for people. He did surgery on me a few months later. My Husband and I both trust him and would gladly reccomend him.

Recently Dr. Melcer performed minor surgery on me. He is very personable and has a good bedside manor. Dr. Melcer does not have his head stuck in a computer, he actually sits and talks with his patients. Dr. Melcer makes patient feel extremely comfortable and educated on any procedure he is about to perform. Dr. Melcer has performed two minor surgerys on me and I would feel comfortable recommending Dr. Melcer to anyone.

Kudos to Doctor Melcer

Not only is Dr. Melcer an outstanding surgeon, he is a kind and caring person,too! It is rare to find a surgeon with a wonderful "bedside manner"! He answers my questions fully, in an easy to understand language. Dr. Melcer is one of my favorite doctors!
