“My father, who is also a physician, inspired me to want to help make patients’ lives better,” Dr. Kharod says. A recipient of numerous awards, including the 2012 Patients Choice Award, “NJ” Best Surgeon, and voted one of America’s Top Surgeons, it’s clear that Dr. Kharod is following in his father’s caring footsteps.

From the moment you have an initial consultation with him to your post-surgical checkups, patients always feel like he has their best interests at heart. “I like to reassure my patients that they’re making the right decision, explain the surgical process, and try to provide a calmness to an otherwise tumultuous time in their lives,” Dr. Kharod explains.

Dr. Kharod, along with the other surgeons at ASHA who are experts in their respective fields, is dedicated to serving patients with the most advanced surgical treatments available.

The practice is conveniently located at CentraState’s Medical Arts Building, and they offer robotic and laparoscopic surgery that provide minimally-invasive options for many procedures, including benign colorectal, colorectal cancer, gallbladder, hernia repair, gastrointestinal, and general breast surgeries. They also offer treatment and surgical options for patients with venous disease, such as Phlebectomy, Scherotherapy, TrivexTM and VenefitTM. “These advanced treatments will shorten your recovery time, decrease pain, and lower the risk of wound complications,” notes Dr. Kharod.

The practice also provides conservative options and surgery on the bowel, liver, appendix, thyroid & parathyroid, veins, and hemorrhoid treatment. In addition, they offer testing for chronic constipation, fecal incontinence, and esophageal reflux.

“I, along with my colleagues, are passionate about giving you the best care possible,” says Dr. Kharod. “We’ll always work with you to figure out the best plan of action for your health.”
