Mallory Yellenich-Huss, MD, FACS, has been named Top Doctor for Women by Minnesota Monthly Magazine. She is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and was nominated by her peers for her work in breast surgery.

Dr. Yelenich-Huss has a B.A. in behavioral neuroscience-psychology from the University of St. Thomas, as well as a B.S. in clinical laboratory science from the University of Minnesota. Her M.D. is from the University of Minnesota, and she served her residency at the University of North Dakota. She also completed fellowship training in breast surgical oncology at Baylor University Medical Center. In addition to benign and malignant breast disease management and breast surgical oncology, she specializes in hidden scar surgery, surgical management of skin cancers, soft tissue tumors and lesions, and acute care general surgery. She holds certifications in advanced trauma life support, advanced cardiac life support, and basic life support.

“I discovered breast oncologic surgery as its own field while I was in surgery residency in North Dakota and took the opportunity to rotate at the Cleveland Clinic with its breast program,” she said. “Cancer surgery, and breast cancer surgery in particular, is incredibly rewarding as I can often offer a true cure for the disease.” In her spare time, Dr. Yelenich-Huss enjoys being with her husband and two children, and spending time at the lakes, running, building Lego creations, crocheting, and completing jigsaw puzzles.

The surgeons at Specialists in General Surgery provide diagnostic and treatment options for a wide variety of medical conditions, including breast disease and breast cancer, endocrine disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, gallbladder disease, spleen disorders and certain cancers, including liver, pancreatic, colon and skin cancer. SGS also manages the Twin Cities Hernia Center for the diagnosis and treatment of several kinds of hernias and the Twin Cities Heartburn Center for the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal disease, including achalasia, Barrett’s esophagus, esophageal cancer, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and hiatal hernia. SGS providers see patients at clinics in Blaine, Buffalo, Crystal, Edina, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Robbinsdale and Saint Anthony.
