Terry Larsen, DO and General Surgeon, has joined the Medical Staff at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital. Larsen received his BS degree in Biochemistry from Iowa State University in 1993, and a BS degree in Medical Technology from the University of Iowa in 1994. He spent the next ten years as a research assistant, medical technologist and teaching assistant, before matriculating at Kansas City University of Medicine and BioSciences where he earned his DO. His six year residency took him to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA and finally, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, in Omaha, NE. Larsen worked as a medical technologist throughout medical school.
Larsen’s practice focuses on minimally invasive surgery and includes, but is not limited to, breast cancer, skin cancer, hernia repairs, gall bladder, thyroid and para-thyroid, upper and lower endoscopy, ano-rectal disease, abdominal surgery and trauma surgery. “I chose surgery because of being able to see the issue, treating it and often, curing it. And, I like the minimally invasive methods of surgery, so that patients can go home quickly and heal faster.”
“We are delighted to have Dr. Larsen join our Medical Staff. He’s a great addition to our community and our patient population. His prior knowledge and appreciation for the area is an added benefit,” stated Bob Hersey, NVRH CFO.
Larsen has been visiting the Northeast Kingdom for the past twenty years, since his wife Rebecca Hill-Larsen has family in the area. Rebecca’s grandfather, Doc Hill, was a well known veterinarian in Littleton. The Larsens have two children, Holden (2nd grade) and Ainsley (4th grade). Larsen’s hobbies include gardening, both flowers and vegetables, soccer, chess and strategy games.
