R. Larry Beamer, MD, FACS General Surgeon

R. Larry Beamer, MD, FACS

What my patients have taught me, first of all, is humility … to be able to hear their story and give intimate details of their lives and be agreeable to allow me to operate on them.

Dr. R. Larry Beamer is a board-certified general surgeon, practicing with Wichita Surgical Specialists. He treats conditions throughout the entire body utilizing minimally invasive and laparoscopic procedures as well as traditional surgery. He treats conditions of the endocrine glands (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands), issues of the hernia and gallbladder, as well as diverticulitis and other conditions.

“What keeps me motivated is that, luckily, I found my passion for life and so when I come in to work, I don’t really come in to work,” said Dr. Beamer. “And the motivation to try and keep up and be the best you can be, but also the reward of taking care of patients.”
