DeKalb Surgical Associates is pleased to announce the addition of Ashleigh Ross, to our practice, as of September 1, 2021. Dr. Ross is originally from Dunedin, Florida. She earned her medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a medical student she did her surgery rotation at DeKalb Medical, now Emory Decatur, under the mentorship of Dr Michael Champney. It was that experience that kindled her interest in pursuing general surgery as her specialty. She has completed her surgical residency at Wright State University, including a final year as chief surgical resident. At graduation, she earned the Trauma Resident of the Year award.

Her surgical interests include hernia repair and robotic surgery.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with her two dogs and doing CrossFit with her husband, Jim.

Dr. Ross will be accepting patients beginning September 1st. Please join us in welcoming her to our medical community.
