Hannibal Regional Medical Group is pleased to announce the addition of Richie Goriparthi, MD, MSc to their team. Dr. Goriparthi earned his medical degree from Zaporozhye State Medical University in Ukraine.

He later went on to graduate from general surgery residency training at renowned Brown University in Rhode Island and completed fellowship training in bariatric and robotic surgery at Jefferson Abington Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University in Pennsylvania.
When asked why he chose to specialize in surgery, Dr. Goriparthi says, “Surgery is a very rewarding field where we get both mentally and physically engaged. The bond between a patient and the surgeon is very special that is not seen in any other specialty. The trust given to us by the patients is very grounding. With all that said, there is no other field in medicine that gives me that immense satisfaction as the field of surgery.”
Dr. Goriparthi loves being able to help his patients, “Most of the time, when patients come to see me, they have tried and failed several other treatments. It is very gratifying to treat and see their quality of life improve” Dr. Goriparthi is focused on working with his patients to understand their core issue, “I try to be patient and listen to all the small details my patients provide and figure out what’s their core problem. I also make it a priority that the patient has an in-depth understanding of their condition as well.”
Dr. Goriparthi and his family are thankful to be able to join the Hannibal community, “Thank you for letting us be a part of the community. I was fortunate to have an extremely diverse medical education where I got to experience several different cultures and at the same time learned to respect every culture and its values. I am grateful for the amazing people that I have met throughout this journey, and I look forward to meeting many more!”
