Department of Surgery Welcomes Five New Surgeons

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine Department of Surgery is very pleased to welcome five new surgeons to the Cincinnati community. This group represents continued growth and investment by the UC Department of Surgery in the areas of plastic and reconstructive, vascular and cardio-thoracic surgery, and in trauma/critical care. "We are excited about the new talent UC Department of Surgery has been able to recruit to our team," said Jeffrey Matthews, MD, chairman of the UC Department of Surgery. "In spite of the challenges facing physicians' groups in the Cincinnati market, we have been able to recruit these highly skilled surgeons because they want to work with the best in their fields. They join a team of nationally recognized clinical experts who care for patients with the latest, most effective techniques and research that are the hallmark of this academic medical center."

Dr. Matthews said the five doctors will be part of an expansion of the UC Department of Surgery that is scheduled to open this fall at University Pointe in Butler County. "We now will be a stronger, deeper resource for our colleagues in private practice. In addition, this new team will help the UC Department of Surgery continue to run one of the strongest training programs in the country for the next generation of surgeons."

All of the doctors will join the Department on July 1.
