Don J. Schiller, MD, FACS, Olympia Medical Center, Renews With Medical Education Speakers Network

Dr. Schiller lectures about ileostomy Options & Continent Diversions. He is a surgical pioneer in the BCIR (Barnett Continent Intestinal Reservoir), an option that provides continence to patients who would otherwise have a conventional ileostomy.

 
PRLog - Nov. 20, 2012 - Don J. Schiller, MD, FACS, of Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles, has renewed his participation with the Medical Education Speakers Network (MESN), an independent speaker’s bureau that provides medical education programs and lectures throughout the United States.  MESN has no commercial or pharmaceutical affiliations and has been providing this service for nearly 2 decades.  MESN also plays a valuable role in the education of physicians and other healthcare professionals throughout the United States.

Dr. Schiller lectures and gives presentations about ileostomy Options and Continent Diversions.  He is a surgical pioneer in the BCIR (Barnett Continent Intestinal Reservoir), an option that provides continence to patients who would otherwise have a conventional ileostomy which requires wearing an external pouch at all times to collect digestive waste.  The patients are usually young (teens to 40s), and suffer from Ulcerative Colitis or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis.  These medical conditions are cured by complete removal of the large intestine and rectum.

Dr. Schiller has been performing continent ileostomy surgery (Barnett type of Kock Pouch (or BCIR), revisions of malfunctioning Kock and Barnett pouches, and conversions of failed ileo-anal J Pouches to the BCIR) since 1989. Over all of these years, one constant exists - the personal commitment and dedication of Dr. Schiller to his patients.
Dr. Schiller has always followed a practice style of being readily available to his patients, especially BCIR patients who need to have access to their surgeon on a long-term basis, even for medically unrelated issues. He wants patients to know that any concerns or questions should be directed to him, rather than relying on the advice of a nurse or PA. Dr. Schiller maintains an office chart on every patient at Olympia Medical Center, and takes notes during every telephone contact.

Dr. Schiller also lectures on the History of Ileostomy Surgery, the Kock pouch continent ileostomy, and Surgical Options for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease).  Dr. Schiller has given many presentations over the past 20 years involving patient groups, Physicians, Surgical Residency Programs, the Quality Life Association and the United Ostomy Associations of America.
