MADISON – The value of surgery for her brother led Dr. Caroline Schreeder to become a general surgeon. She has joined the staff at Madison Hospital.

Her office address is 8375 U.S. 72 W. Schreeder joins fellow surgeons Dr. Matthew Hunt and Dr. Douglas Downey at the hospital.

The impact of surgery that helped her brother led Schreeder initially to enter the field of medicine. “He was born with a neuromuscular condition that the orthopedic surgeons were unfamiliar with. My brother underwent multiple procedures to alleviate his condition,” she said.

“I was always fascinated with how much more functional he could be from a single surgery,” Schreeder said. “I decided I wanted to be that person able to make that change in a person’s life.”

At first interested in orthopedic surgery, Schreeder completed surgery clinicals and “knew general surgery was the place for me. I enjoyed the variety of surgery and the opportunity for creativity within the field.”

Schreeder earned a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts and English at the University of St. Thomas in Houston. She graduated from the University of Texas Medical School, also in Houston.

“I just recently graduated from General Surgery Residency from the Louisiana State University program in Shreveport. This will be my first job out of residency,” Schreeder said.

Family ties influenced her decision to practice in Madison. Her husband’s family lives in Huntsville.

“My father-in-law is a hematologist-oncologist here and has had nothing but wonderful experiences and relayed those to me,” she said. “I admire the kind of community that exists here — highly educated, compassionate and empathetic people and physicians.”

Her patients are adolescents and adults who need laparoscopic surgery for any type of hernia, cholecystectomy, appendectomy, thyroidectomy, splenectomy, open hernia repair, bowel or colon resection, port placement, lesion removal and breast surgery.

Her husband Dr. Martin Schreeder works as an emergency room physician. She holds membership in the American College of Surgeons, American Women in surgery and Madison Medical Alliance.
