Physician Bio

Dr. Bryan Rivera is a highly trained general surgeon, specializing in minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures that allow better outcomes and reduced recovery times. Dr. Rivera is certified to perform a wide array of surgeries focused on the abdominal organs.

Dr. Rivera chose to practice in the High Desert because he saw a need for non-invasive surgical specialists, especially for colorectal surgeries, an area in which he is highly skilled. He enjoys spending as much time as is needed with his patients to ensure they are comfortable with him and fully understand their diagnoses and all possible methods of treatment.

He was awarded the Hughes D. Dougan Award in Surgery recognizing his attention to detail and commitment to quality patient care as chief resident of general surgery at Morristown Memorial Hospital in New Jersey.
