Following major abdominal intestinal surgery such as the BCIR, patients deserve the best of care. This includes a specially trained Nursing Staff, fully knowledgeable about BCIR Continent Ileostomy surgery and the needs of patients after their operation. However, excellent nursing is not enough. It is required that the Attending Surgeon see their patients every day while they are in the hospital. While some Surgeons use “care extenders” like a Nurse Practitioner (NP) or a Physicians’ Assistant (PA), that certainly can never substitute for the Surgeon visit. Only the Surgeon has attended Medical School and done a Surgical Residency. If a complication develops, only the Surgeon will be able to detect it at the earliest possible time, and insure an optimal outcome. Only the Surgeon will be able to detect subtle changes that could indicate a condition needing intervention or treatment. Dr. Schiller’s style of practice is “hands on”. He will see every post-operative patient every day. This includes changing the dressing/bandages daily to personally inspect the incisions and not to rely on someone else’s observations. If Dr. Schiller must be away, an Attending Surgeon colleague who is completely familiar with BCIR patients and BCIR surgery sees the patients daily until Dr. Schiller returns. In addition, following discharge from the Medical Center, Dr. Schiller maintains a follow-up appointment schedule (by telephone for out-of-town patients) with each patient during the first 6 months, and as needed thereafter. He and his staff are always available, and readily available, for any patient questions or concerns, which are addressed on a same day basis. The combination of excellent in-patient care and thorough follow-up is the hallmark of Dr. Schiller’s surgical practice.
