Richard Eller, M.D.

As a Board Certified General Surgeon, I perform a wide scope of surgical procedures ranging from minor office procedures to robotic and laparoscopic operations.  Some of the most common operations include:

  • Gallbladder (laparoscopic or robotic)
  • Appendectomy (laparoscopic)
  • Inguinal Hernia repair (laparoscopic or robotic)
  • Incisional Hernia repair (laparoscopic or robotic)
  • Hiatal Hernia/Reflux (laparoscopic or robotic)
  • Umbilical (belly button) Hernia repair
  • Partial Colectomy for colon cancer, diverticulitis, intestinal obstruction, etc. (laparoscopic, robotic or open)
  • Thyroid operations for benign and malignant thyroid disease
  • Parathyroid operations for tumors and parathyroid gland hyperplasia
  • Lipoma removal (some may be removed in the office)
  • Excision of cysts of the skin, including scalp cysts (some may be removed in the office)
  • Biopsy of enlarged lymph nodes (laparoscopic or open)
  • Other operations within the scope of General Surgery


After you have had the opportunity to explain your condition to me, we will fully discuss the treatment options that are available and together we will make the best decision for how to proceed.  I will answer all of your questions and give you the benefit of the latest technological innovations along with my 20 years of experience as a general surgeon.  Most operations may be accomplished with minimally invasive techniques of laparoscopy or robotic surgery; however, my experience also encompasses traditional open operations.

Acute problems are typically handled through the Emergency Room in order to hasten relief of pain and facilitate the diagnostic process.  I am currently on staff at Centennial Medical Center in Frisco.  Day surgery operations are performed at Centennial Surgery Center or Surgery Center of Plano.
