Important Specialties for Physicians, Surgeons and Doctors

Physicians, doctors and surgeons all make important contributions to the field of health care. However, the medical field boasts many different divisions within it, offering areas of specialty that make one doctor more qualified than another and one surgeon better prepared to administer a complex surgery than one who does not practice that type of medicine. When searching for a physician, it's important to find out information like where the doctor did his or her residency, what staff the professional was trained with, and more. Read below to find the definitions for some of the major medical specialties.

  • Plastic Surgery - This generally includes surgical practices done to enhance one's aesthetic appearance. This often refers to cosmetic treatments, such as breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and other similar procedures or more serious procedures like skin grafts done for burn victims.
  • Pediatrics - Specialists in this field see to the medical care and treatment of youths, from infants to teenagers. Pediatricians serve as the primary care physician, handling non-emergency events like prescribing medication for a cold, or administering booster shots. These type of doctors often own or are affiliated with family clinics or practices.
  • Orthopedic Surgeon - This professional specializes in providing care for problems within the musculoskeletal system. These surgeons handle complex procedures like performing hand surgeries, or ones as simple as testing and improving the flexibility of an individual after a sports related injury. They often work closely with physical therapists for follow-up treatments with their clients.
  • Internal Medicine - Physicians in this field specialize in the care and treatment of adult patients, working in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Though these doctors are able to perform tasks such as writing prescriptions, they are not usually associated with private, family care practices. In fact, many work closely with hospitals and perform basic surgeries.

    Medical experts treat and care for patients of all ages. Doctors and pediatricians offer wellness visits where they discuss health concerns and check vital signs. They prescribe prescription medications and order tests to diagnose problems. Surgeons perform operations that help you overcome a condition or illness. You'll find these professionals in hospitals, family clinics, and private practices. Surgery has helped many people overcome disease, since the beginning of time. In Mesopotamia, herbs served as medications and obsidian attached to bronze handles created an early form of scalpel. Physicians have always served the medical needs of society and ensured that advancements in medicine are available to ill patients. Since the time of Hammurabi, doctors have been held in high esteem. The staff at private practices and hospitals receives training in a specific specialty. Orthopedic physicians specialize in bones and muscle attachments. Pediatricians work with infants and children. Cosmetic surgeons perform operations that change or enhance someone's physical appearance. Internal medicine looks at the organs in inside of the body. Anyone in these fields starts out in a residency and improves their skills through rigorous hands-on training. Today, insurance companies usually handle payments to doctors, surgery experts, and other specialists. People with health insurance coverage pay a portion and insurance pays the rest. Many companies only provide coverage if you use a specific medical office or hospital. When searching for an expert, it's important to ask your insurance company for a referral. This is the best way to find quality clinics or hospital emergency rooms that are approved by your carrier.
