Mari A. Madsen, MD, FACS, FASCRS
After ten years of practicing colon & rectal surgery in Los Angeles, California, Dr Mari Madsen is thrilled to relocate to Annapolis, closer to her roots on the east coast. Dr. Madsen attended college at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and received her MD from Tufts University School of Medicine. After school, she completed her general surgery residency at Emory University Hospitals in Atlanta, followed by a colorectal surgery fellowship at Cleveland Clinic Florida. Dr. Madsen is board certified in both general surgery and colorectal surgery.
During the first ten years of her career, Dr. Madsen was an attending surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she served as Clinical Chief for the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery from 2009 to 2011. Her focus is minimally invasive surgery, such as laparoscopic surgery, with specific areas of interest that include surgical management of rectal cancer using robotic-assisted technology, natural orifice surgery using the TAMIS platform, and novel therapies for the treatment of fecal incontinence.
She has co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications, as well as book chapters on fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse and treatment of ano-rectal fistulae. She has been an invited speaker and abstract reviewer for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons annual meetings. Her research has been presented on both national and international levels.
The daughter of a college professor and an elementary school principal, Dr. Madsen places a high value on education and teaching. Her husband runs a charity called Little Sister’s Fund, which provides long-term scholarships to disadvantaged girls in Nepal. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and long walks with her dog.
