MALONE – General surgeon Tanya Castelino, MD, FRCSC, is the newest member of the University of Vermont Health Network–Alice Hyde Medical Center medical staff. She joins Christopher Brandy, MD, FACS; Stuart Hoffman, MD, FACS; and Nikalesh Reddy, MD, FACS, in Alice Hyde Surgical Services, 16 Third Street, Malone, NY 12953, phone 518-481-2632.
Castelino completed her residency at McGill University Health Centre in Montreal and most recently served as a Clinical Fellow at St. Joseph’s Hospital, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, where she completed a fellowship in Advanced Gastrointestinal Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery. From 2014 to 2018, she also served as a Fellow in McGill University’s Clinical Investigator Program. She is a 2012 graduate of McGill University’s Medical School.
Castelino joins Alice Hyde’s general surgery team, with a focus on minimally-invasive (laparoscopic) procedures and gastrointestinal surgery. Her areas of expertise includes advanced laparoscopic foregut surgery, laparoscopic hernia repair, gastric resection, and more.
“I’m committed to giving patients the information and insight to help them understand what we’re doing, why and how it needs to be done, and also the work they are going to have to do in order to get the best result,” said Castelino. ”Having surgery, whether elective or emergency, can be very traumatic for patients and their family, and so one of the most important things I can do as their health care provider is to make them as familiar as possible with the process we are all going through.”
Alice Hyde Surgical Services uses the latest techniques in minimally invasive, laparoscopic, and open surgery to treat patients who have a wide range of health conditions including breast procedures, gastrointestinal procedures, skin procedures and more.
