Meet Dr. Vail Brennan — General and Bariatric Surgeon at St. Elizabeth


Hi, I’m Dr. Vail Brennan, I’m a General
and Bariatric Surgeon at St. Elizabeth. In high school, I played football, ran track
and was all-state in both. Then I went to Centre College, where I played
football and ran track there. Then I wound up blowing my left knee out,
tore my ACL my senior year. Came back for a fifth year and blew my right
knee out, and that’s when all the future plans, kind of, got blown up and turned to
medicine. I like the idea of helping people. I like the idea of making sick people well. I like when people get to enjoy going home
and resuming their life. So, I do general and bariatric surgery. Surgery, in general, appealed to me because
I like seeing a problem and fixing a problem. I like having an end in sight. I like seeing a goal and achieving it. I also like bariatric surgery because I think
it really helps these people who’ve reached that point in life and they say “I need
a little help. Not that I can’t do it, but I need a little
help in doing it.” It works, so … and I like to provide that
help.
