"In addition to performing general surgical procedures, I also perform endoscopic laser therapy for varicose veins and procedures to treat cancer, as well as peripheral vascular disease, hernias and trauma- related injuries," Dr. Barrette says. "As for my thoracic capabilities, most of the chest procedures I perform – which involve a small incision and the use of a scope – are to treat cancer or confirm its presence." Dr. Barrette has settled in well to his new life in Huron. Almost as soon as he arrived last fall, he bought a Jeep® and began taking trips to explore the region. "I like the clean air here, and I've always loved the history of the Wild West," he says. "I've visited a lot of interesting places since moving here, including the site of General Custer's Last Stand. I enjoy hiking and exercising – just one of the reasons why South Dakota is perfect for me." Contact the HRMC Surgical Clinic at (605) 353- 7660 for all your surgical needs. *Dr. Barrette is an independent practitioner.
