Darren Perttu, MD, FACS, brings advanced surgical care to our region. “My goal is to help people live longer, healthier lives. I work closely with my patients to provide information and recommendations so that they can make the best healthcare decisions. And ultimately, many times it does take surgery to get patients back on the road to better health. I enjoy the variety that a general surgery practice offers and the opportunity to work with patients of all ages.”

Dr. Darren Perttu is certified by the American Board of Surgery in General Surgery and his practice includes a wide range of services including laparoscopic general surgery including gallbladder removal, hernia repair, colon and rectal surgery, colonoscopies and upper endoscopy, women's health/breast surgery, skin cancer and skin lesion removal, and varicose vein treatment. He earned his Medical Degree from Michigan State University in East Lancing, MI and completed his residency at Michigan State University. Dr. Perttu most recently practiced at Essentia Health in Hayward, Wisconsin.

Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time with his family and hobbies include being outdoors, tractors and hobby farming. “I’ve lived in northern Wisconsin the past 5 years and love the small-town atmosphere. I couldn’t imagine leaving Wisconsin, so we’re happy to find a great hospital and community to relocate to and raise our family, “he explains. “I consider myself easy to get-to-know and talk to and look forward to becoming part of the Lancaster community.” To schedule an appointment, call (608) 723-2131.
