Jan 19, 2022
(ST. JOSEPH) – Spectrum Health Lakeland is pleased to welcome general surgeon, Nathan Piovesan, MD, to the medical staff. Dr. Piovesan is seeing patients alongside four general surgeons and two advance practitioners at Southwestern Medical Clinic Surgical Specialties, located at 3950 Hollywood Road, Suite 100 in St. Joseph.
Dr. Piovesan earned his medical degree and completed a general surgery residency through the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University in Ohio. He has over sixteen years of surgical experience including five years of active-duty service with the United States Air Force which involved multiple deployments throughout the world in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Unified Response, Haiti; and President of the United States (POTUS) surgical support mission, Mongolia, among others.
Prior to coming to Lakeland, Dr. Piovesan served as both director of general surgery and medical director at Memorial Christian Hospital in Bangladesh. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a member of the Society of Air Force Clinical Surgeons (SAFCS) and Christian Medical and Dental Association.
“I believe surgery is more than just the operation as it encompasses and affects every aspect of the patient’s life—physically, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally,” said Dr. Piovesan. “It is my honor to partner with my patients in developing a treatment plan that encompasses the needs of the whole person and offers the very best of outcomes. I am committed to walk alongside my patients with integrity and compassion, in clear communication, and with surgical excellence through whatever disease or injury brought us together, seeking their welfare above all else.”
Spectrum Health Lakeland offers patients access to a highly trained team of general surgeons and advanced practitioners who use the latest treatments and technologies to complete hundreds of surgeries each year. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, visit lakelandgeneralsurgery.com
