Dr. P. J. Benyamini, a talented young surgeon with a reputation for excellence performing intestinal surgery, has joined the surgical team of the renowned Dr. Don J.

The addition of Dr. Benyamini to Dr. Schiller’s team gives intestinal surgery patients more opportunity to benefit from this life-changing option immediately and for the long-term. The Continent Ostomy Center and Olympia Medical Center are proud to welcome Dr. Benyamini and are pleased to be one of the few facilities able to provide this procedure.
