Surgical Associates of Mansfield – Dr. Winston Chan

As a fellowship-trained Colon and Rectal surgeon extensively trained in minimally- invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, Winston Chan has much to offer his patients, not the least of which is a shorter, less painful recovery after surgery. Through something called “enhance recovery after surgery” or ERAS, Dr. Chan can improve his patient surgical outcomes by approaching their care from a multi-disciplinary standpoint. This surgery-based program begins with a patient’s first surgery clinic visit. “A few of the important elements of a successful ERAS program include minimally-invasive surgery, multimodality pain control, and “pre-habilitation” for surgery (improving fitness, dieting, and overall health prior to surgery),” Dr. Chan said.

The concept was first introduced at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center by Drs. Gary Alexander and Jeremy Parcells with the results being shorter length of hospital stay, improved pain control, increased patient satisfaction, and reduction of complications. “The Department of Surgery at Methodist Mansfield is proud to create an Enhance Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) committee and I’m proud to have been chosen co-chair of the program, because of my prior successful ERAS programs,” Dr. Chan said.

“I began my career performing minimally-invasive or laparoscopic surgery which was revolutionary in its time,” Dr. Chan said. “But with robotic surgery, I am offering my patients suffering with conditions such as diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, rectal cancer, and other concerns, surgery shorter recovery times, less pain, less risk of infection, and improved outcomes. da Vinci robotic surgery has offer me more precision during surgery. And combined with ERAS, it has offered my patients better outcomes and much less arduous recoveries,” Dr. Chan said.

Dr. Chan received his Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering from the University of California Berkeley and his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He completed a general surgery residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston and Colon and Rectal fellowship training at Baylor University Medical Center. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery.

Dr. Chan met his wife in medical school, a fellow MD specializing in physical medical and rehabilitation. The Chans are happy to be raising their two children in Texas. In their spare time, they enjoy cycling and swimming together. Dr. Chan speaks both English and Mandarin.
