Personal Interests

Brandon Grover, DO, is a General Surgeon who initially came to Gundersen Health System as the MIS/Bariatric Fellow in 2008. After completion of his fellowship he returned to active duty military service in the U.S. Air Force. Upon conclusion of his commitment to the AF, he returned to La Crosse in 2012. He became the Advanced GI and Bariatric Fellowship Program Director in 2019 after 7 years of being the Associate Program Director.  He feels privileged to work with the exceptional group of residents and fellows that are fortunate to train at Gundersen. His surgical interests include bariatric surgery (laparoscopic gastric bypass and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy), laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery (including LINX and hiatal hernia repairs), and laparoscopic/robotic hernia repairs.
