Best Doctors for Women 2011

Best Doctors for Women 2011

Some deliver newborns. Others reattach severed limbs. And still others outline grim prognoses as tenderly as possible. But the 418 Twin Cities physicians named in Minnesota Monthly’s Best Doctors for Women poll were chosen by their peers not just for professional expertise. We also asked respondents to nominate professionals who were “attuned to the specific needs of female patients.” We wanted to know who put the care in healthcare. Here are the results.

What It Feels Like to Deliver a Baby

Dr. Virginia Lupo

It doesn’t get old or trite. I finished residency 28 years ago, and today even the simplest, most complication-free delivery is a total rush. For a lot of my med students, their first delivery is their most moving, meaningful experience.

Obstare. That’s the Latin behind the word “obstetrics.” It means “to stand before.” And it’s apt: sometimes the baby just shoots out and we literally catch it. A lot of deliveries can and do happen on their own.

Sometimes, though, we need to help it out. A 10-pounder is not going to slide out on its own. I always tell med students, babies are much heavier and much more slippery than you think. Most of us are not used to holding 10 slippery pounds in front of an audience.

One of the scariest things is when the head comes out and the rest of the body gets stuck. So what you do is, you turn the head sideways, and you pull it down toward the floor—always with your hand over the ears. That’ll get the anterior shoulder out. Then you pull back up to the ceiling, to get the other shoulder out. And with your other hand, you guide out the torso and legs. Ideally, you end up with the baby’s head in the palm of one of your hands, the body along the forearm, and the little feet touching your inner elbow. So he’s like a football. And then you have the other hand free to clamp the umbilical cord, wipe the face, and wave to the video recorder.

If someone’s available, we let him or her cut the cord. They won’t know where to cut, so you have to show them. An umbilical cord, it’s pretty tough—about three quarters of an inch around, with three blood vessels in there. And you gotta be sure the baby doesn’t fling his hand up to help, because you can slice fingers off in a heartbeat.

We’re the first person to cradle every baby. Even if we put him right up on Mom’s tummy, we still have the privilege of being the first to hold him.

I’m a good Catholic girl. And since I started seeing and understanding labor, I’ve always listened to the Christmas story in the Bible differently. It’s very humbling to be in the presence of these lives starting. You deliver these little people, and you think, “Where were you before this?” It’s quite moving.
 

Dr. Scott Anseth, Orthopedics

How to Replace a Patient’s Hip

Dr. Scott Anseth

It doesn’t require a ton of horsepower to dislocate a hip. If you’ve ever done it to yourself, accidentally, you know. That’s nice for us surgeons, because we have to get that old hip out before we can put in the replacement. When you do it, though, it does make this gruesome sound. I flex the hip just a bit—at this point I’ve already cut in deep and split the joint—and the top of the femur pops right up through the incision. To me, it always looks like a baseball, round and white. We isolate it, then I take a saw and buzz through the tip of the thighbone. That’s really what we’re replacing, that top ball part.

The thighbone is a tube. And the metal stem that we put in isn’t that thin. It’s thicker than a pen. With a little bit of pressure, I work it inside, pushing it down through the spongy material inside the bone. Then you use a mallet to tap it home. You have to listen. There’s a certain pitch you want. When it fits, it makes a certain “tink, tink—thunk.”

The procedure is very mechanical. It allows us to imagine the body as a machine that can be easily fixed, which is comforting. Of course, that isn’t true, but with other surgeries—removing an appendix, transplanting an organ—the patient may not get obviously, visibly better. With this, they go back almost immediately to normal. You replace the hip, and two or three days later, they have substantially less pain. After six months, they have their lives back. They can play with their kids again. They can walk around the lake with their spouse. As a surgeon, there’s a lot of immediate gratification. Who you are is defined a lot by what you do physically, and nothing makes you feel more alive than movement. People weren’t meant to sit around.

It’s probably the best, most perfect surgery in medicine. I love doing it. Patients’ lives get much better instantly. It’s mind-blowing.
 

Dr. Dana Carlson, General Surgery/Breast Cancer Specialist

What It Feels Like to Tell a Woman She Has Breast Cancer

Dr. Dana Carlson

We had a young woman who had just delivered a baby the day before. She was up in the post-partum ward and was having trouble nursing. That’s when she noticed a large mass in her breast.

So I go see her, and she’s holding this beautiful little girl. She’s in that blissful post-partum state—totally unprepared for what I’m about to drop on her.

I knew immediately it was cancer. It felt like she had golf balls in her armpit. With lumps that big, you wonder why the patient never noticed them. But she’s 30. Totally healthy. No risk factors. The last thing on her mind is, “Huh, maybe I have cancer.” She thought her breasts were swelling because her milk was coming in. But your milk doesn’t come in until after you deliver.

I just say, “We’d like to look at something with a mammogram ultrasound.” I’m 90 percent sure she’s got cancer, but I’m potentially about to take a woman from the best day of her life to the worst day of her life. I don’t want to be wrong.

It’s not just me. Everyone is hesitant to jump to the cancer diagnosis. The radiologist wants to do a biopsy. I say, “I’m pretty sure it’s cancer.” And she says, “Well, I am, too, but I really don’t want to tell her that.” So we’re all kind of stalling. With post-partum women, it’s an emotional roller coaster. Your hormones are crazy. And we’re about to add cancer to the mix? We get the biopsy: it’s cancer.

Her whole family is there in the exam room—her parents, her husband. I’m the one who tells her. I walk up to the patient, grab her hand, and just say, “You have breast cancer.” She falls into a chair and starts sobbing. She asked me the question “Why?” probably 20 times. I’m tearing up.

But I always tell them, “You’re going to be okay. We’re going to work through this together.” Now, the vast majority of the time, this is true. Breast cancer is not a death sentence. The survival rate is high. But it can always come back. So a little bit of that “You’re going to be okay” is positive thinking, and some of it is really truth. That’s the big benefit of working with breast cancer: it’s treatable.

I called her the other day to check in. She had just had chemo and was out for a long walk. It was a hot, disgusting day. I said, “Oh my god, in this weather? I wouldn’t go for a walk in this!” And she said, “You know, other than losing my hair from the chemo, I haven’t had any real physical side effects.” She’s got good energy, her baby’s sleeping through the night, she’s got a wonderful attitude—her odds are quite good. And if it does come back, we’re still here to support her.
 

 

 

Dr. Laura Schrag, Emergency Medicine

How to Break Bad News

Dr. Laura Schrag

We had a boy who dived into Lake Minnetonka, hit the bottom, and broke his neck. A 19-year-old, totally healthy kid. And broken necks are so awful because these people come in wide awake. They can look at you. They can talk to you.

This kid is totally conscious, but he can’t move anything. He’s terrified, but he isn’t screaming in pain. Just calm. It’s a little freaky, honestly. He probably has a clue as to what’s going on, but nobody wants to say aloud that he’s paralyzed.

I know it right away. It’s textbook: dive in, hit your head, can’t move anything. And the hardest part is, I know we can’t really do much. You get this unbearable feeling of helplessness. You feel the dread.

So I have to tell him he’s probably going to be paralyzed. I feel like it’s always best to bring the family in and let them see what we’re doing. That way, they see that we’re doing everything that we can, and they can be part of the process. The key thing is that they often don’t hear what you say the first time. You still go straight to the point. So I deliver the worst news first, let them soak it up, answer any question, and then come back to the point.

I also try to avoid saying anything is “certain.” You don’t want to eliminate hope. Because there’s always a little bit of hope. Even some neck injuries can be, we say, “reduced,” which means the person can move again. But you absolutely have to be truthful.

I also make sure there’s someone that can stay with the patient and his family—a nurse or a chaplain. Those people are phenomenal. They do a fabulous job of taking over, answering questions, listening. It’s a total team approach. In fact, afterwards, I always ask them for feedback, to see if I handled the situation appropriately or if there’s something I can do better next time.

Then, you have to set it aside. You tell your partners you need a few minutes to walk the halls. You turn your beeper off. You know, we’re part of a team. The nurses, techs—they recognize what just happened, and they’re there to support you. I’ll tell you, it can put your life in perspective in a heartbeat. And it happens every single day.
 

Dr. Jennifer Harrington, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

What It Feels Like to Reattach a Pair of Severed Arms

Dr. Jennifer Harrington

It is 2:30 in the afternoon. My beeper goes off, and it’s the ER.

They say they’ve got a little two-and-a-half-year-old boy who’s been hurt in a farming accident. Something about his arms getting caught in a grain auger. Now, I’m not a farm girl; I don’t know what that means. But I’m a brand new surgeon, three months into my private practice, and I’m feeling pumped for any new challenge. I’m so ready for this surgery.

I zip over to the ER. The boy’s being stabilized, so I check in quickly with the family, shout out a few orders, and grab the cooler with the severed arms. You have to prep the limbs before reattachment, clean them up. So I head to the operating room and open up the cooler—and I just gasp. It’s a mutilated, contaminated mess. Do you know what an auger is? It’s a giant corkscrew blade, like a drill. And his arms went up into it. They had been amputated sequentially. There is grain embedded all throughout the tissue. I call my mentor, Dr. Van Beek, whom I had trained with at the Mayo Clinic, to come down and help.

Dr. Van Beek arrives. He takes one arm, I take the other, and we’re sewing. For the tendons and muscles you use bigger sutures. But for nerves and vessels, you use sutures tinier than an individual hair. You wear these magnifying goggles to see them.

Thirteen hours later, the surgery’s done. We’ve got a little boy with both arms on, with 10 pink fingers, and I’m feeling really good. I look at Dr. Van Beek, and he says, “You’ll be lucky if you save one elbow.” And I’m thinking, “Wow, way to be a pessimist.”

But I was naïve. The arms got infected. Over the course of about two weeks, I had to go in and start cutting pieces off. There were 19 additional surgeries. The right arm, the one I had just reattached? We took it off completely. The left arm we amputated at the elbow. Just like Dr. Van Beek said: we got one elbow.

I felt like a failure. I had never let a patient down before. I cried. I had sleepless nights. Even later, when colleagues congratulated me on saving that one elbow, when the family thanked me for all the work I had done, I still felt conflicted.

Luckily, the patient is doing great. He ended up getting into public speaking. He’s addressing groups of surgeons and other amputees. We’re still friends, actually. And knowing him—it sounds cheesy, maybe—has really shaped me. Not just as a surgeon, but as a person.
 

Dr. Margit Bretzke, General Surgery

What It Feels Like to Operate on a Human Brain

Dr. Margit Bretzke

It’s my first night on call for neurosurgery, and I end up racing down to the hospital. The ER physician says he has a 17-year-old kid who was out partying, fell off the back of a car, and hit his head.

I get there, and the patient is showing signs of an epidural hematoma—blood pushing hard on the brain. Of course, the inside of the skull is a finite space, so adding pressure is like squeezing a balloon: it forces the brain to bulge. But the only place it can expand is into this small hole that attaches it to the spine. That’s called herniation. If you herniate, you die. And this kid was definitely herniating.

The chief resident, Dr. Nagib, arrives. He’s going to do the operating. I’m just there to assist and to learn. After a quick CAT scan, we rush the kid back to the OR and put him to sleep. At this point, I’m pretty worried: this kid could die. Every minute that slips away is impacting his recovery—or if he even can recover.

We start the craniotomy, which is when you lift a flap of bone from the skull to see inside. I had never witnessed this before. They shave his head, and Dr. Nagib drills several holes into the patient’s skull. Because this is 1980 and drills aren’t motorized yet, Dr. Nagib is cranking the drill by hand, boring into the skull. After drilling a few holes, he cuts from one hole to the next with a motorized saw. The result is this little window.

He lifts the flap of bone out, probably the size of a teacup’s saucer, and the blood pours out. But then he clips an artery, and the bleeding stops. It’s a surprisingly bloodless operation—which means you really get a good look at the brain. And it looks just like you think it would. It’s gray and folded, and it’s compressed because all this blood has been pushing on it. I realize I’m looking at a live brain for the first time in my life, and I’m just awestruck.

And then it starts ballooning out. It starts pushing up through this little bone window, and it’s scary. It’s very scary. And that was just too much. I got so light-headed I couldn’t stand up. I was sweating; I was dizzy; I was seeing colors; the room was spinning. Finally, Dr. Nagib just said, “Margit, go sit down.”

It was just the high stakes of it all. We truly saved this kid’s life. The whole thing worked. Dr. Nagib and I stopped the swelling. He wired the brain flap back on, and the kid did fine—he totally returned to normal. After that, I was fine, too. The brain never freaked me out again.
