Dr. Patrick Kiefer has the following 2 specialties
- Trauma Surgery
Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.
- 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.

He didn't do surgery thank goodness. I can't judge his skill there. My opinion is that if he takes over your trauma care in the hospital watch out! If you rub him the wrong way, he may discharge you. I required 3 L of oxygen, and my lung (accident)was full of fluid. He told me to get up and walk (while in intenstive care) because he wanted to send me home the next day. I was really scared, and that added the the original trauma from the accident. I should have had somebody fly me to Froedert Hospital. He was a nasty bully. I think he'd done it with other patients, and it was not an insurance issue. We did file complaints. Again you may love the guy, but to me he was horrible.
