Vein Services: Dr. Paul Dagher has more than 18 years of experience in treating varicose veins with non-operative and minimally invasive techniques, in addition to performing general surgery at Watauga Medical Center for many years.

Hidden Scar Breast Surgery®: Breast cancer can be surgically removed with a mastectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove all of your breast tissue) or a lumpectomy procedure (your surgeon will remove only part of your breast tissue). With a Hidden Scar procedure, your surgeon will place the incision in a location that is hard to see, so that the scar is not visible when your incision heals. As a result, you have little to no visible reminder of the surgery or your cancer.
