About me

Patrick Jackson, MD, is board certified in General Surgery and is the chief of the Division of General Surgery at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. In addition, he is a professor of Surgery at Georgetown University School of Medicine and the Surgical Residency program director. His focus and specialties include pancreatic surgery, surgical oncology, and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr. Jackson was the first surgeon in Washington, D.C., to start implanting a device called the LINX Reflux Management System to keep food and stomach acids where they belong, giving patients with painful and potentially dangerous acid reflux a new surgical option that treats the cause of the problem at its source, not just the symptoms.

Dr. Jackson graduated from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his internship, residency in General Surgery and an Advanced Laparoscopic Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. In addition, Dr. Jackson was a Robert Linton Research Fellow in the Department of Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital.
