Our Mission

In 1C13 represents 1 Corinthians 13, a passage in the Bible that specifically illustrates how all we do is meaningful only if it is done out of the sentiment of love.  The passage also fully describes what that love should look like.  Our vow at 1C13 Medical is to care for every patient in the same manner that we would want for ourselves and our loved ones.

Our commitment to this pledge manifests in several ways:


Not only in the practice of medicine and surgery but also in everything else we do – remaining current on medical knowledge, doing our work in as timely and meticulously as possible, and attempting to implement the best practices of medical care.


Involving good work ethic, persistence, reliability, and consistency in all we do, both for patients and our colleagues and associates.


A mindfulness of the suffering or hardship of every patient we care for, remembering that all we do in medicine is ultimately for the sake of a fellow human being in need.


Being as transparent as possible in every aspect of care we provide, since the best medical care occurs in the setting of a trusting relationship between provider and patient.

Ultimately, we at 1C13 Medical hold to the understanding that an attitude of love and care results in the most ideal form of healthcare. We commitment to excellence, dedication, compassion, and integrity as we serve our patients.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Advancements in surgical techniques have revolutionized how most abdominal surgeries are performed today. A number of procedures can be performed through small incisions, by use of telescopic cameras and slender instruments.

Robotic Surgery

In the landscape of modern medicine, surgical robots have emerged as remarkable tools that are redefining the potential of minimally invasive procedures. These technologies help surgeons to execute a variety of laparoscopic techniques that were once previously technically difficult or considered impossible.
