WELCOMING NEW PATIENTS!
“Making my patients as comfortable as possible is very important to me. Prior to surgery, I take the time to sit down with them and their families and explain in detail the expectations, risks and complications, as well as the recovery process of their surgery, so they feel as comfortable as possible going into the procedure.”
Dr. Mohir H. Hedeshian is a Cardiothoracic Surgeon at the Worcester Hospital location of Saint Vincent Medical Group. Dr. Hedeshian performs both thoracic and adult cardiac surgical procedures using both traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Though the medical issues of lung cancer patients are often complex, Dr. Hedeshian explores avenues of treatment best befitting the unique needs of each patient, whether that be through surgery, combination of surgery and chemoradiation, or through the newly acquired robotic radiosurgery (CyberKnife® treatment) for patients who are otherwise non-surgical candidates.
Dr. Hedeshian ensures that patients fully understand and are comfortable with the procedure before agreeing to undergo any surgical intervention. “Cardiothoracic surgery is done routinely and effectively in every hospital, it doesn’t have to be a terrifying process. I see it as my job to ease the fears and concerns of the patients and their families.”
Board-certified in both General and Cardiothoracic Surgery, Dr. Hedeshian completed his internship and surgical residency at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts. He then completed his Thoracic Surgery Fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and his Cardiac Surgery Fellowship at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Med. Center in New York. Dr. Hedeshian received his MD from SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York.
