What do general practice physicians do, and why are they so important?

Trained in all areas of medicine, general practice physicians can diagnose and treat the full range of problems people typically bring to their doctors. They know how to care for you and, if necessary, when to bring in another specialist you can trust.

General practice physicians are experts in prevention, treating most acute illnesses and helping people effectively manage chronic medical problems.  Regular visits to a family physician have even been shown to lower the overall costs of health care and improve the health of the people they serve when compared to similar groups who only receive care from subspecialists.

Most importantly, your General practice physician is trained to provide comprehensive care through all the stages of your life. They take care of the physical, mental and emotional health of both their patients and their patients’ families and they know your family’s health history and how it can affect you.

The physicians of Sievers Medical Clinic are dedicated to providing the best treatment plan that meets your individual needs.  We are proud to offer a wide range of services within the General Surgery specialty.

Breast Disease Surgery

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women and affects one in every eight women in the United States. If a diagnosis of breast cancer has been made, your doctor can recommend which type of surgery is best for your individual case and discuss all options with you.

A mastectomy is a procedure to remove the breast in patients with breast cancer. This is one of the most commonly used treatment options for breast cancer, as it effectively removes all traces of cancer and reduces a patient’s risk of recurrence. Also known as breast-conserving or breast-sparing surgery, lumpectomy is a surgical procedure that removes cancerous or abnormal breast tissue. While mastectomy removes the entire breast, lumpectomy only removes a portion of the breast, keeping its overall appearance intact. Breast reconstruction is a procedure performed after a mastectomy to offer patients psychological and aesthetic benefits when recovering from breast cancer.

Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery is often the recommended course of treatment for certain diseases such as colorectal cancer, diverticular disease, intestinal blockage due to scar tissue, ulcerative colitis that does not respond to medication, traumatic injuries and polyps.  Polyps are a small cluster of cells that form on the lining of the colon or the large intestine. Most polyps are not cancerous and are simply a result of abnormal cell growth, but some can gradually turn into colon cancer, so regular screening and removal of all polyps is important.

Prior to colorectal surgery, the colon may need to be cleaned with an enema or oral agent.  Then, the patient is put under general anesthesia. A series of small incisions are made in the abdomen through which an endoscope and surgical instruments are inserted. Working through these tiny incisions with the help of the endoscopic camera, the surgeon removes the diseased intestine and sews the remaining ends together. The incisions are then stitched closed.  After undergoing colorectal surgery, most patients return home within a week.  Full recovery generally takes up to two months.

Hepatobiliary Surgery

Hepatobiliary surgery is used to treat disorders of the liver, bile ducts, and gallbladder. Disorders include congenital abnormalities, inflammations, traumatic injuries, gallstones, and benign and malignant tumors. During hepatobiliary surgery, the surgeon removes the unwanted masses, such as gallstones or cancerous parts of hepatobiliary organs.

Hepatobiliary surgery may be performed laparoscopically and has many of the benefits of other laparoscopic surgeries. This minimally invasive procedure provides patients with shorter hospitalization, a faster recovery, smaller scars, and less post-operative pain.

High Complexity General Surgery

General surgery is a medical specialty that necessitates its practitioners have a broad knowledge of many conditions and the effects they may have on the body. General surgeons are well equipped to diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments. They receive extensive training after medical school, with hands-on residencies that give general surgeons practical, in-depth experience working on the digestive system, skin, breasts, organs of the abdomen and more to prepare them to perform complex surgeries of all types.

One area of general surgery in which we specialize is hernia repair.  This can encompass a simple hernia repair—performed laparoscopically if possible—to push tissue that is protruding through an opening in the abdomen, groin or naval area back into place.  It may also be highly complex surgery if the abdominal wall requires reconstruction.  Once the tissue is returned to its original location, the weakened area of the wall must be strengthened with stitching or synthetic mesh to prevent the formation of another hernia.

What you should know while the life-expectancy gap between men and women has decreased, it’s no secret that men still need to pay more attention to their bodies. Several things work against men. They tend to smoke and drink more than women. They don’t seek medical help as often as women. Some men define themselves by their work, which can add to stress.

There are also health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone. Many of the major health risks that men face – like colon cancer or heart disease – can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. It’s important to have regular checkups and screenings.

What is an OB/GYN?

An obstetrician is a physician who has successfully completed specialized education and training in the management of pregnancy, labor, and pueperium (the time-period directly following childbirth). A gynecologist is a physician who has a successfully completed specialized education and training in the health of the female reproductive system, including the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases. Typically, the education and training for both fields occurs concurrently.

An obstetrician/gynecologist is a physician specialist who provides medical and surgical care to women and has particular expertise in pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the reproductive system. This includes preventative care, prenatal care, detection of sexually transmitted diseases, Pap test screening, family planning, etc.

An obstetrician/gynecologist—commonly abbreviated as OB/GYN—can serve as a primary physician and often serve as consultants to other physicians. OB/GYNs can have private practices, work in hospital or clinic settings, and maintain teaching positions at university hospitals. OB/GYNs may also work public health and preventive medicine administrations.

OB/GYNs have a broad base of knowledge and can vary their professional focus. Many develop unique practices, providing high-quality health care for women. OB/GYNs may choose to specialize in the following areas:

  • Acute and chronic medical conditions
  • Adolescent gynecology
  • Behavioral problems
  • Cancer
  • Endocrinology
  • Health maintenance during pregnancy
  • Infertility
  • Operative gynecology
  • Pregnancy and delivery
  • Preventative health
