Douglas Surgeon Leaves

Douglas, Wy – The only general surgeon in the town of
Douglas, Dr. Robert Ratcliff, plans to move his practice to Casper
this fall.
Too much time on call and the types of surgeries Ratcliff has
been doing are the main reasons for his departure. That's according
to Tom Nordwick, administrator of Memorial Hospital of Converse
County.
Ratcliff is a colon-rectal surgery specialist but has been doing
many basic procedures in Douglas. He hopes to shift his attention
to more complicated cases after moving his practice to Wyoming
Surgical Associates in November.
A replacement surgeon has NOT been found.
