Fluent in English & Chinese
Dr. Jimmy Xu is from Fayetteville Arkansas and completed his bachelor of science in industrial engineering at University of Arkansas. He completed his medical degree at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He completed his general surgery training at St Louis University. Finally, he underwent further training in a Minimal Invasive, Bariatric, and Robotic surgery fellowship in the Bay Area of Oakland, California. This extra training was to offer patients more options in terms of minimally invasive surgery and ultimately faster and less painful recovery.
He has a special interest in weight loss surgery as well as upper gastrointestinal surgery utilizing a variety of minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Xu completed his fellowship in robotic surgery as well and completed more robotic cases than any fellow in California. After fellowship, he moved to Henderson, NV and helped grow the robotic surgery program at St Rose Siena and became the medical director of weight loss surgery at St Rose Siena. Throughout Dr. Xu’s extensive training and accomplishments, his guiding quote has been, “I ask not for a lighter burden, but broader shoulders.”
Dr. Xu is amazing, deserving of 500 stars if I could. He is open, honest, thorough, and keeps his patient well informed. He is passionate about his work. He gives patient's ample amount of time to ask questions and explains thoroughly in plain English. When mentioning second opinions Dr. Xu is very understanding and will even encourage to do so. He is willing to work with his patient's to aid them in achieving their goals. Overall excellent surgeon, would definitely recommend to family and friends.
I developed a hernia in Feb. and the emergency room doctor suggested a few surgeons. Dr. Xu was not one of the doctors recommended and being all the ones that were, was busy, I took a chance and made an appointment. I made a great choice because he was prompt ,to the point, explained the pros and cons honestly and the wait time was minimal. Mar. 8 was the surgery. After surgery I walked on my own and only needed Ibuprofen. I am back to work and feel great. Thank you Dr Xu for a job well done.
