WARRENSBURG — Western Missouri Medical Center announced that Brandon Machicao, DO, earned his board certification in December from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.

To become board certified, a physician completes a five-year specialty residency training.

During that time, the surgeon has examinations of charts and surgeries reviewed by an experienced surgeon.

After completing the five-year residency, they take a rigorous oral board examination at the National Conference.

Board certified general surgeons offer comprehensive general surgery care including hernia repair, cholecystectomy, appendectomy, colon and rectal surgery, skin cancer biopsy and removal and breast cancer treatment.

Providers such as Machicao, Amira Ghazali and Diane Switzner are committed to providing advanced procedures including minimally invasive techniques for quicker recoveries.

Machicao and his wife, Emily, both grew up in Missouri and have family residing here.

They also just delivered their new baby at WMMC.

Machicao graduated from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri, where he completed his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine.

He then completed his General Surgery Residency at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Columbus, Ohio.

“My wife and I feel very fortunate and blessed to be back in Missouri,” Machicao said. “Since moving back in July, we have really enjoyed Warrensburg and all the relationships we have formed so far. I look forward to growing my family here and serving the community of Warrensburg in any way that I can.”
