About Dr. Cottrell

General surgeon Chris Cottrell, MD, FACS, is honored to be a member of the team at Advanced Surgical of North Texas. As one of the only surgeons in the area to perform the transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) procedure for acid reflux, Dr. Cottrell is pleased to bring his advanced skills and experience to patients living in and around McKinney, Texas.

After growing up in Houston and San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Cottrell received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He graduated from medical school near the top of his class and went on to complete his general surgery residency at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado, where he was named outstanding resident of the year.

After practicing in North Platte, Nebraska, for a time, Dr. Cottrell soon realized that Texas was his home. He returned in 2005, and has since worked in various locations, including Garland, Rowlett, and Rockwall, Texas. He served twice as Chief of Staff at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Lake Pointe and also chaired the credentials committee for four years. 

Dr. Cottrell’s medical interests include reflux surgery and minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, including the use of the da Vinci® Surgical System. 

When he isn’t working, Dr. Cottrell enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, and anything with a microchip.
