Rochester Regional Health brings Thoracic Surgeon to Newark-Wayne

by WayneTimes.com
May 1, 2021

Patients in Wayne County, Ontario County, and the rural communities surrounding the Finger Lakes no longer have to drive to Rochester to see a thoracic surgeon.

Starting May 3, Jeffrey Cane, MD, of Rochester Regional Health’s nationally recognized Sands-Constellation Heart Institute, will begin seeing patients at his new satellite office on the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital campus. Until now, no area health system has made a thoracic surgeon locally available in any of the rural counties surrounding the Finger Lakes.

“I look forward to making thoracic surgery more accessible in the Finger Lakes,” Cane remarked. “Any time we can help patients stay closer to home and bring specialties out to the communities we serve, we make life easier for the people who need us.”

 Thoracic surgery is highly specialized and helps address a wide range of conditions of the esophagus, lungs, mediastinum, trachea and diaphragm. Those conditions range from infections of the chest or lungs to advanced-stage malignancies. Cane’s new presence at Newark-Wayne connects local patients with even more resources from Rochester Regional Health’s multidisciplinary team.

The new office is on the campus of Newark-Wayne Community Hospital at 1304 Driving Park Avenue in Newark, on the building’s first floor. To make an appointment, patients should be referred by their health care provider before calling Genesee Valley Cardiothoracic, part of the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute, at (585) 922-3260.
