(July 22, 2014) – General surgeons Mark DeMar, MD, FACS and Kraig Knoll, MD, FACS have joined in Carson Valley Health’s mission to promote the health and wellness of the Carson Valley and are now practicing out of the Job’s Peak General Surgery office across the street from the Gardnerville hospital.

“Dr. Knoll and Dr. DeMar are well-respected in our area for their experience and patient-centered approach to surgical care.” says Gina Zink, CVH Director of Clinics, “We are excited to have them join our team and expand the surgical options for our patients at Job’s Peak General Surgery and at Carson Valley Health.”

The two surgeons have been partners for the past ten years, first practicing together in Arizona and then moving to the Carson City area six years ago. Dr. DeMar and Dr. Knoll are the only surgeons in the area who perform laparoscopic inguinal hernias, and are Certified Wound-Care Specialists. They are both experts in minimally invasive surgery.
