Dr. Metersky has been in practice in San Antonio, Texas, since 2001, where he completed his medical degree and general surgery training at University of Texas Health Science Center.

He is the chairman of the BHS Medical Staff Quality Committee, as well as the chairman of the BHS Committee on Robotic Surgery. Dr. Metersky is also the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of South Texas Care Connect, Baptist Health System’s clinically integrated partnership.

He has served as Chief of Staff at St. Luke's Baptist Hospital, is a member of its Physician Quality Committee, and is an active charter member of the system-wide Professional Standards Committee. He has been voted by his peers as one of San Antonio's Top 100 Doctors, and has been featured in Scene in SA and NSIDE MD Magazines. He is the first recipient of the Baptist Health System W.B. Russ M.D. Award, recognizing his "outstanding service and dedication to St. Luke's Baptist Hospital."

Dr. Metersky has performed over 250 da Vinci Cases and over 100 in the past year. Dr. Metersky performs da Vinci Single Site cholecystectomy, multiport hiatal hernia repair, Heller esophagomyotomy, inguinal and inicisional hernia repair, solid organ resection, small bowel resection, right and left colectomy and LAR (oftentimes with intracorporeal anastomosis).

  • Uses da Vinci Stapler, Firefly and Vessel Sealer for all Colorectal cases
  • Uses Firefly during cholecystectomies
  • Proctored many surgeons around the state of Texas and has been offering Case Observations for over 6 months.

Prior to adopting da Vinci robotic surgical technology, Dr. Metersky routinely performed single incision cholecystectomies, appendectomies, and small and large bowel resections.

Dr. Metersky enjoys robotic surgery and often tells visiting and referring physicians that “Robotic Surgery is changing the paradigm in which we operate. Improved patient outcome, with equivalent or decreased cost over conventional laparoscopy is being realized.”

Dr Metersky will offer case observations every Friday at St. Luke’s Baptist Hospital in sunny San Antonio, TX. Dr Metersky is an energetic General Surgeon and very engaging during surgery. He routinely uses the da Vinci Vessel Sealer, Suction/Irrigator and Fire Fly for appropriate cases. He has been using the da Vinci Stapler with great results. Dual console for your visiting surgeon is available on most days. Turn-over times at this efficient robotic hospital are routinely under 20 minutes so your surgeon will generally see three robotic cases before mid afternoon. Dr Metersky is available for dinner the evening before case observation by request.
