The Skill, Knowledge and Care.
Since 1982, South Mississippi Surgeons has been the leading providers of surgical treatment for the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the surrounding areas. South Mississippi Surgeons is one of Mississippi’s largest general surgery practices with convenient office locations in Biloxi, Ocean Springs, and Pascagoula. We perform surgeries across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
For over 35 years, our practice has been committed to providing the highest quality surgical care South Mississippi has to offer. We have seven general surgeons on our staff: Dr. William “Pete” Avara, Dr. John Bailey, Dr. Edward Dvorak, Dr. Jason Payne, Dr. Nicholas Fayard, Dr. Jeremy Simpler, and Dr. John Hall.
Meet Our Doctors
Our practice is multi-specialty with a range of surgeries and procedures, including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, robotic-assisted surgery, complex hernia repairs, breast surgery, weight loss surgery, GERD surgery, and wound care treatment, to name just a few. We also provide in-office skin lesion removal, which takes only a few minutes and requires no anesthesia. We also include South Mississippi Cosmedics.
Our general surgeons have operating privileges at multiple hospitals and outpatient treatment centers throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast, including Singing River Health System’s hospitals, Merit Biloxi, MS Gulf Coast Endoscopy and Ambulatory Surgery Center (outpatient), and Ocean Springs Surgical and Endoscopy Center (Outpatient).
