Patient Care Philosophy
I believe in proving the best and "cutting edge" care for both the elective operation and the critically ill surgical patient. My goal is to provide exceptional care without exception.
I enjoy traveling with my wife, son and daughter. I both water and snow ski and enjoy bicycling.
Dr. Maier's primary clinical interests are in care of the multiple injured patient, and the severely ill patient from surgical disease, such as gall bladder stones, diverticulitis, perforated ulcers, bowel obstructions, appendicitis, intestinal ischemia and necrotizing soft tissue infections, such as "flesh eating bacterial infection". In addition, he performs numerous general surgical procedures such as laparoscopic Nissen procedures for hiatal hernias with reflux, gall bladder disease, colon cancer, hernias of all types and anal diseases, such as hemorrhoids, etc., along with other surgical processes.
Dr. Maier's research interests in the ICU are improvements in care for multiple organ failure, including lung, due to injury, sepsis or severe illness. He has studied the immunologic response to injury and sepsis and developed treatments to counteract the inappropriate response by the patient's body. He is also involved in the delivery of care, including development of trauma centers and systems.
