Dr. Sogunro joins VVRMC from Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio where she was honing her skills as a surgeon. She covers the full spectrum of general surgery but specializes in breast cancer surgery, colon surgery and endocrine (thyroid and parathyroid) surgery. “I will be ready to see new patients starting August 1st,” she said.
Dr. Sogunro is well traveled. She was born in Nigeria, moved to Edmonton, Alberta as a young child and then went to high school in Connecticut. She attended Medical School in Blacksburg, Virginia and completed her residency in Ohio.
Her love of science and her desire to help people be well drove her to medicine. “I love anatomy,” she said, “I love discovering new things. I want to help people feel better.”
