After a two-year stay at a hospital in Oklahoma, surgeon Lan Raikar has returned to Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming. “We are pleased to welcome General Surgeon Lan Raikar, MD, back to Fairview Lakes Medical Center, “ said Bryan Gaffy, vice president of business development. In addition to a wide array of general surgeries, Dr. Raikar’s areas of expertise include minimally invasive surgery for treating varicose veins and breast cancer surgery. She also performs laparoscopic colon resections. During the past two years, she worked with a private practice. “I did my surgical training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and feel that a multi-specialty practice is the most beneficial setting for patients to receive care and for physicians to practice medicine,” Raikar says. “I feel Fairview Lakes has that type of setting, and I am glad to be back working here. I welcome the camaraderie among the physicians and the appreciation of the patients I encounter here.” Dr. Raikar sees patients in the specialty clinic at Fairview Lakes Medical Center.
