Dr. Maria Frexes Steed has the following 2 specialties
- General Surgery
A surgical specialist is a physician who has additional training in a specific area of surgery.
The American Board of Medical Specialties acknowledges the following surgical specialties: general surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, colon and rectal surgery, obstetrics and gynecological surgery, neurological surgery, ophthalmic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngological surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery, and vascular surgery.
Some procedures are performed by more than one type of specialist. Also, some surgeons may choose to specialize in specific procedures within their specialty area. For example, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon may specialize in performing rhinoplasty procedures.
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Dr. Frexes is, without a doubt, one of the best surgeons around. She is very knowledgeable and up to date in the current world of surgical oncology. You may have to wait to see her, but that is just because she is good at what she does and other patient's know it. If you want a doctor who knows the ins-and-outs of their field, you want Dr. Frexes.
Though very kind, I will NOT be returning to Dr. Frexes's office. After having an ultrasound performed, I was sent to St. Thomas Women's Hospital for a more in-depth ultrasound. However, upon finding out nothing was wrong & that I was in the clear, I was STILL required to return to Dr. Frexes's office for a follow-up, where I was again checked for NOTHING, as I was just informed that nothing was there by the ultrasound technicians at the other office. This 5 minute appointment incurred a $200+ charge, all for a recommendation of various vitamins to take. I highly suggest seeing someone else.
