Interventional Radiologist Joins NMMC-West Point Medical Staff
WEST POINT, Miss.—North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point welcomes interventional radiologist Mark Ellis, M.D., to the medical staff.
Dr. Ellis becomes the West Point hospital’s first full-time interventional radiologist. His addition will expand radiology procedures available on campus, including same-day mammogram readings and breast biopsies for patients with an abnormal mammogram. Because his office is located inside the hospital, he is readily available to discuss findings with patients.
Dr. Ellis has practiced with Golden Triangle Radiology, P.A., in Columbus for more than 22 years. In 1998 he established the interventional radiology program at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Columbus, where he has served as medical director of Radiology since 2000.
Dr. Ellis earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Mississippi State University in Starkville in 1987 and his medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson in 1991. He completed an internship in internal medicine and a residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in interventional radiology at UMMC and St. Dominic Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology.
He and his wife, Leah Bell Ellis, are both Starkville natives. They have three children—Sydney, Jack and Will. In his free time, Dr. Ellis enjoys bicycling and saltwater fishing. He also enjoys playing guitar with his band, Bouncing Betty, which plays primarily 80s and 90s rock. The Ellises are members of Hope Community Church in Columbus.
