Dr. Fullington performed over 2000 operations while working as a hospital based General Surgeon for the last several years. She will be joining us in May 2021 to specialize in ambulatory hernia, pilonidal, and gallbladder surgery. While Dr. Fullington is a very experienced surgeon, she and Dr, Reinhorn will initially operate together when performing the open preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair and the Shouldice (non-mesh) hernia repair. In addition to offering open preperitoneal mesh and non-mesh hernia repairs. Her laparoscopic training and experience will allow for care of patients who for various reasons would benefit from laparoscopic hernia surgery rather than the open preperitoneal repair. 

Additionally, given her vast laparoscopic experience, she brings  expertise in gallbladder surgery to our practice. She is committed to providing specialized, high quality, patient-centered care while creating a comfortable experience for her patients.

She is passionate about humanitarianism in medicine and has organized surgical mission trips to Haiti to treat the underserved population in Port au Prince and surrounding communities and has facilitated “Humanism in Medicine” lecture series. She cares deeply that patients feel heard and understood, have their questions and concerns valued and addressed, and feel the benefits of a collaborative approach to their care.  

When not working she enjoys time with her family, friends, and pets, travel, sports, hiking, going to the beach, biking, almost all outdoor activities, cooking, and good conversation.
