Dr. Keith Chisholm  
Dr. Chisholm
Surgical Specialists of Trinity was formed by Dr. Keith Chisholm to help meet unfulfilled surgical needs in the southern Pasco and northern Pinellas/Hillsborough county areas.

He was recruited to this area for his special set of surgical skills. Those skills he obtained during his general surgery training at the University of Florida and later as an adjunct assistant professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida.

Dr. Chisholm was born and raised in North Carolina. Early in life, he gained a deep appreciation for others well-being and a deep sense of a duty to help others. This led him to medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From there, he set aside his fondness of Carolina Blue for the Orange and Blue of Gainesville, FL. Surgery residency training at the University of Florida gave him a well-rounded experience that included routinely performing some of the most complex general surgery cases. He gained more experience as an attending surgeon at the Gainesville VA where he demonstrated how to safely and thoughtfully care for the surgical patient. At that time, the Gainesville VA system was the second busiest in the nation, behind only the Tampa VA system. In the 5 ½ years there, Dr. Chisholm performed and taught general surgery procedures to residents. This included over 200 colon surgeries (more than many surgeons perform in a career). It is believed that he performed the first laparoscopic colon resection in the UF department of surgery, while at the VA. “It was a privilege to serve our veterans and in some small way give back to a special group of people who have given so much for our country.”

After leaving the VA, Dr. Chisholm stayed in the Gainesville area for 4 more years, before bringing his wife and two daughters to the Trinity and Pasco/Pinellas counties area. “This is a unique opportunity to bring some new programs and new procedures to a growing area with two new, state-of-the-art hospitals and competitive hospital systems.”


In surgery, there is no substitute for being well-trained. After residency and formal training, gaining new knowledge and competencies continues through self-directed learning, collaboration, and conferences. “I continually read, study, and review the current surgery literature as well as attend conferences and training courses, in an effort to continue to provide the best care I can.” If you have patients that need our services, we will do our best to provide our best. Patients deserve the right to respectful and considerate care. Welcome to SST Surgery.
