Dr. Stewart’s Professional Transition

Professional Transition

2016 is a year of professional transition for me.  I have always worn two hats, so to speak: chief medical officer for Stewart Home & School and managing partner of Fayette Surgical Associates, Lexington’s busiest general and vascular surgery practice.  As many know, I have always conducted a Monday evening clinic and additionally speak daily with the medical staff office.  This supplements our health care team’s work which includes our own nurses, med-techs and night watch along with the nurse practitioner primary care specialists from Bluegrass Extended Care, who specialize in adult internal medicine and long-term care facility treatment.  I have reduced my OR time this year by one third.  Effective January 2017, I will conclude my surgery practice to be here full-time.  The medical side will be my traditional focus, but the new time will be administrative, co-managing operations with Barry Banker.  Come January, I’ll be wearing one hat.
