Welcome to Sydni J. Imel, DO

CentraCare General Surgery welcomes Sydni J. Imel, DO, to its team. Dr. Imel knows that discussing or undergoing surgery is a vulnerable position for most patients. That’s why delivering competent care with compassion and empathy is important to her. She says, “With every encounter, decision and recommendation, I picture each patient as a family member. My ultimate goals are to earn patients’ trust and to deliver safe, evidence-based surgical care. Being a surgeon is a privilege, and operating on patients comes with high responsibility I never take lightly.”

Clinical interests for Dr. Imel include robotic and minimally invasive surgery, benign and cancer disease of the breast, hernia surgery, colon surgery and gall bladder surgery. She  completed her general surgery residency at Mercy Health  St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio, and attended medical school at Oklahoma State University – College of Osteopathic Medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Imel enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. She also enjoys being active outdoors, riding her Peloton, watching sporting events and drinking a good cup of coffee.
