  • About Me

    Dr. Jason Rasmussen is a fellowship-trained board-certified general surgeon with a special interest in bariatric surgery. He is a native of Minnesota, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Rasmussen completed medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and general surgery residency at the University of California, Davis.



    Following residency, Dr. Rasmussen completed his fellowship training focusing on advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgery, also at the University of California, Davis. Dr. Rasmussen has published more than a dozen research studies on bariatric surgery and its unparalleled potential to change people’s lives for the better.
    Dr. Rasmussen has performed nearly 2,000 surgeries, including well over 100 bariatric surgeries. In addition to bariatric surgery Dr. Rasmussen performs the following advanced laparoscopic surgeries:



    Laparoscopic Anti-Reflux surgery (GERD)
    Laparoscopic correction of Achalasia (a swallowing disorder)
    Laparoscopic Hernia repair (including groin, abdominal wall and hiatal hernias)
    Laparoscopic Colon-Small Intestine surgery
    Laparoscopic Gallbladder removal
    Laparoscopic Appendix removal
    Laparoscopic Spleen removal
    Laparoscopic Adrenal gland removal

    Dr. Rasmussen's passion for bringing long-term weight loss to morbidly obese patients led him to join the comprehensive bariatric program at Georgetown Community Hospital. His goal is to provide the safest and most comprehensive surgical and post-operative care to each individual.


    A successful outcome to bariatric surgery requires more than a successful surgery: it requires a commitment to many lifestyle changes. Dr. Rasmussen’s training allows him to function as more than just a surgeon to help each patient make these changes. Because each patient’s journey before and after surgery is unique, he strives to individualize each patient’s care to suit his or her needs. Dr. Rasmussen treasures the partnership he forms with his patients as they go through this wonderful process.



    Dr. Rasmussen comes to Georgetown with his wife, Jeanelle, and their two children Anna and Benjamin. They enjoy a wide variety of family activities including outdoor recreation and travel.
