General Surgeons from Physician Trends targets medical professionals who provide pre-operative, operative, and post-operative care to patients.
This group allows you to target highly intelligent, ambitious, well-educated healthcare professionals who are dedicated to the care and well-being of others. This target group has received their doctorate degree and completed an internship and residency program. Continuing education is essential for doctors to keep up with medical advances and license requirements. Not only do they attend classes, workshops, conventions, and seminars, docs also read journals, articles, magazines, and publication to stay current with medical advances.
General Surgeons perform trauma and scheduled surgeries which focus on the abdominal organs (intestines, stomach, esophagus, bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts). They treat diseases involving skin, breasts, and hernias. Their most common surgeries are lumpectomy, mastectomy, gallbladder and appendix removal, skin grafts, organ perforation, and bowel obstructions. With advances in technology, laparoscopic surgeries are becoming more common. A surgeon spends the day in their office, in the surgery room, or in the hospital making rounds. They may work in private practice, group practice, universities, or hospitals. They are assisted by nurses, anesthesiologists, and administrators. They prescribe medication, so they work closely with pharmacists and local pharmacies.
The DO requires proper tools to care for a patient. Common tools of the trade are stethoscopes, blood pressure devices, thermometers, prescription pads, masks, safety goggles, scales, gloves, needles, medications, duct dilators and scoops, forceps, scissors, probes, clamps, hooks, sponges, dressings, scalpels, retractors, vein strippers, laparoscopes and accessories, and medical and office furniture. The MD needs disposable systems and services for biological and hazardous waste. Access to organ and tissue donors is also a necessity.
Medical professionals are concerned about their physical fitness. A doctor typically maintains a healthy lifestyle. They eat right, exercise, and take vitamin supplements. They may shop at a health food store to ensure they are getting the proper nutrients. The MD may have a gym membership, run, or bike. They may take martial arts, yoga, spin, Zumba or other exercise classes.
Stress levels in the medical profession are often high due to the long hours and irregular and on-call shifts. These factors may also cause stress for their family. Consequently, they search for hobbies to help reduce their stress level, and they strive to balance work and home demands. They hire out many of the household chores such as lawn, home, and car maintenance, cleaning, banking, grocery shopping, and other personal errands.
Many in this group graduate with high debt load due to student loans, so at the beginning of their career, they may need a budget or money management system. MDs are a highly compensated group, so as their career progresses, they tend to have discretionary income. They can then purchase luxury homes, vehicles, vacations, and other toys such as RVs, ATVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and high-end electronics. They manage their personal financial portfolio and enjoying investing.
