I've been a patient of Dr. Kubicka's at Maple Grove Surgical Specialists for some time now.  The family like atmosphere makes this clinic stand out from the others.  I highly recommend Maple Grove Surgical Specialists for the personal and professional care they provide.

Board Certified Physicians

Our surgeons are certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). 

According to the American Board of Surgery, a surgeon who is certified in general surgery by the ABS has training, knowledge and experience relating to the diagnosis and comprehensive management of surgical conditions in the areas listed below. This includes preoperative, operative, and postoperative care, as well as the treatment of complications in these areas.

General surgeons are also trained in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery and endoscopy-surgical techniques using telescopic instruments to examine or treat internal organs-which are commonly used in surgical management.

  • Digestive tract - esophagus, stomach, small bowel, large bowel and rectum
  • Abdomen - stomach, diaphragm, biliary tract, liver, pancreas, spleen and all types of hernias
  • Breast - all types if benign and malignant disease
  • Skin and underlying tissues - all types of benign and malignant disease
  • Endocrine system - thyroid and parathyroid glands, pancreas and adrenal glands
  • Head and neck surgery - trauma and vascular, endocrine, birth defect and malignant disorders
  • Pediatric surgery - surgical care for children of all ages, including newborns
  • Surgical critical care - care of critically ill patients with surgical conditions requiring intensive care
  • Surgical oncology - surgical management of cancer treatment and coordination of all aspects of cancer care 
  • Transplantation surgery - including liver, kidney, pancreas and small bowel
  • Trauma and burns - all phases of care for the injured or burned patient from the emergency department to rehabilitation, including intensive care
  • Vascular surgery - arteries and veins, including vascular access surgery for kidney dialysis patients and vascular surgery emergencies

To be certified by the American Board of Surgery means that the surgeon has met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge in the speciality of general surgery. Board certification is voluntary and therefore differs from medical licensure, which is required by law for an individual to practice medicine.
