About David Donahue, DO

David Donahue, DO, FACS, believes the best approach to care starts by building a trusting relationship between the provider and patient. Dr. Donahue recognizes that surgery may be a frightening experience for some. That is why he ensures that his patients are fully informed about their surgical conditions and fully understand their options, including non-operative options when available. 

Dr. Donahue manages routine and complicated general surgery conditions, has a strong interest in minimally invasive surgical procedures, and is one of the leading robotic general surgeons in the area. He leverages this advanced technology into a vast majority of his practice, including hernia surgery, gallbladder, and biliary surgeries. He also incorporates robotic technology into surgeries that involve the small intestine, stomach, and colon for both cancer and benign conditions with improved outcomes and faster recovery. 

Dr. Donahue received his Bachelor of Arts in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He earned his medical degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in Downers Grove, Illinois. Dr. Donahue traveled to Portsmouth, Virginia, and completed his residency training from the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.  After completing residency, he was an active-duty Navy surgeon for four years, including a combat deployment to Afghanistan.  He is currently obtaining his Master's in Business Administration from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado.

Dr. Donahue enjoys spending time with his family enjoying all that Colorado has to offer. He likes skiing in the winter and boating and hiking in the summer. Dr. Donahue also enjoys traveling whenever possible.
