Dr. Marshall K. Walker contributes a fresh look at emerging and age-old problems concerning operative approaches and maintaining low patient impact through minimally invasive techniques. As a native of the Gulf Coast, his childhood spent in New Orleans, LA and Ocean Springs, MS instilled an understanding and an eventual passion for bringing the big city into smaller communities regarding medical expertise.
Dr. Walker received a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Duke University followed by a contemporaneous MD/Master of Public Health degree from Tulane University.

He then completed an internship in general surgery followed by diagnostic radiology residency at the University of South Alabama and a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
He currently is in private practice in coastal Mississippi and is routinely among the first interventional radiologists to adopt emerging technologies in the southern United States.
