DR. SWETNAM'S interest in medicine began in high school.  He graduated from Richmond high school in Missouri with aspirations for medical school.  He applied for and was accepted to the University of Missouri at Kansas City school of Medicine six year medical program.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree and  MD degree from there.

 He then did an internship and residency in General Surgery at the Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans.  He served as Chief resident there and as the acting clinical director of Charity Hospital in New Orleans.  He practiced General and Peripheral Vascular surgery in Missouri and Tennessee for the next twenty years.  

Patient demand and an interest in Cosmetic surgery began to increase and Fellowship training in Cosmetic surgery was imperative.  In 2006 he applied for and was accepted to one of the premier cosmetic surgery programs in the country with Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and Dr. James Koehler in Tulsa where he trained in 2007.  He then joined their practice and also worked out of Face and Body Medical Aesthetics until 2011.  He trained in modern vein surgery in Birmingham, Alabama with Dr. John Kingsley adding to his current vein experience.  During the time at Tulsa Surgical Arts and Face and Body, he practiced General Surgery, full body Cosmetic Surgery and started the Oklahoma Vein Center providing extensive modern vein therapy.  

He has now relocated to the Grove community to provide these same services to the people of Bentonville, Fayetteville, Rogers, Grove, Joplin, Bartlesville and still remain close to his patients and friends in Tulsa.  He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.  

Total Body Surgical means just that.  Surgery for the total body.  Our experience has been that patients needing general surgical procedures develop a like and trust for the surgeon they choose.  They often desire cosmetic or vein procedures, but want to maintain the trusting relationship they have with their current surgeon.  The same problem occurs after weight loss procedures when body contouring is needed.  Our goal is to offer the complete range of surgical care including general and weight loss surgery, body contouring and cosmetic surgery, along with modern vein therapy in a pleasing and friendly environment.
