General Surgeon Crystal Lumi, MD, joined the Winona Health medical staff
Dr. Lumi has been serving as a visiting physician in Wisconsin and Minnesota. She said, that being a visiting physician provides a lot of flexibility, but she was ready to settle in somewhere. “I chose Winona Health because I love the people here. I’ve been a visiting physician at many hospitals in Wisconsin and Minnesota. This is the friendliest place I’ve ever worked. Everyone is welcoming and they are happy to be here–and the focus is always on providing the best care for our patients.”

In addition, she completed a Fellowship in Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery at the University of Minnesota. Her main surgical interests are surgical oncology, particularly breast cancer and rare tumors, as well as finding the least invasive treatment.
“As a surgeon, I enjoy getting to know people both in the context of their illness and their life and offering them solutions to their health problems,” said Dr. Lumi. “Surgery is a very intimate profession, and I like making connections with people and holding their hand through a difficult time. Surgery is serious business, but being able to laugh with them along the way can be helpful to them, too.”
Dr. Lumi’s professional memberships include the American College of Surgeons; American Society of Breast Surgeons; American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery; Association of Women Surgeons; the American Medical Association; and International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity.
