I was recruited to come to Portland in 1997 by Surgical Associates to become an all-around General Surgeon. I initially began my career doing all sorts of surgery ranging from vascular reconstructions, to breast, to head and neck, to colorectal. I returned to Portland following and joined the oldest Colorectal surgical group in Portland working closely with other surgeons also highly trained and focused on only Colon/Rectal Surgery. My training and education as well as subsequent experience proved to be extremely beneficial and rewarding. . In 2010, I was recruited to lead Legacy Health's Colon/Rectal Surgery program, with special interest in developing a program for screening, prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer. My current practice is focused principally on colorectal surgery, but also includes surgery of the abdomen in general. I also treat all types of anorectal complaints including hemorrhoids, and what is traditionally regarded as Proctology.

Dr. Frankhouse read me medical history, listened to me, thoughtfully explained my options, his preference and why and then let my husband and me decide. More and dare I day all doctors should be like this.
