Keith S. Gersin, MD

 

Keith S. Gersin, MD specializes in minimally invasive surgery for obesity, and has performed nearly 200 procedures with extraordinary success. The minimally invasive approach does not require a long abdominal incision and patients experience less postoperative pain, fewer wound complications such as infection or hernia, and return more quickly to normal activity.

Dr. Gersin has six years experience in performing both open and minimally invasive (laparoscopic) gastric bypass for morbid obesity. Comments from his weight loss patients as seen at www.obesityhelp.com include:

· "He is very quiet, but very smart and methodical. He called me one evening to help with some questions that I was having pre-op. He has been very supportive and reasssuring. I think that he is wonderful!"

· "Future patients should know that Dr. Gersin is a highly trained surgeon and they will be in excellent hands. Aftercare is readily available and encouraged. The risks of surgery were frankly addressed. I would recommend him HIGHLY 10+ to anyone requiring surgery. As far as what is better, surgical competence far outweighs a bedside manner. Dr. Gersin is blessed with the best of both."

· "Dr. Gersin and the rest of the staff at UC stress the importance of aftercare so well that I do believe those who are not committed to aftercare 100% would be denied services. I recommend UC Weight Loss programs and surgeons. They are excellent."

Dr. Gersin received his B.A. degree from Boston University and his MD degree from Georgetown University. He completed his Surgical Residency at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and advanced training in minimally invasive surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Gersin is Assistant Professor of Surgery, Director of Surgical Endoscopy and Laparoscopy, as well as Director of the fellowship program in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery at the University of Cincinnati.

Dr. Gersin is a member of numerous medical societies including the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons. He has been named in Marquis Who's Who. Dr. Gersin has also led the development of advanced laparoscopic surgery for chief residents and fellows.

Dr. Gersin is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery. He sees patients at the Medical Arts Building and at The University Pointe in West Chester.



Calvin A. Selwyn, Jr., MD

 

Calvin A. Selwyn, Jr., MD has outstanding skills in minimally invasive surgery for obesity. Surgical weight loss patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery do not require a long abdominal incision and also experience less postoperative pain, fewer wound complications such as infection or hernia, and return more quickly to normal activity. Dr. Selwyn also specializes in minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery.

Dr. Selwyn is a graduate of the Fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery and Bariatric Surgery in the UC Department of Surgery under the direction of Dr. Keith Gersin. He has trained extensively in minimally invasive surgery and open procedures for morbid obesity, as well as upper and lower endoscopy.

Dr. Selwyn received his MD degree from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine and completed his residency in general surgery at Marshfield Clinic/St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, Wisconsin. He also completed a Microsurgical Training Course in the Department of Plastic Surgery at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Dr. Selwyn is a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (winning their Outstanding Laparoendoscopic Resident Surgeon Award in 2003), the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons, and a candidate member of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Selwyn sees patients at The University Pointe in West Chester.



Timothy J. Broderick, MD, FACS

 

Timothy J. Broderick, MD, FACS is Associate Professor of Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, and Chief of the Division of Gastrointestinal and Endocrine Surgery. Dr. Broderick is a NASA-funded researcher who is currently evaluating the use of virtual reality simulators as a method to train astronauts to perform surgery in space.

Dr. Broderick specializes in advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery. He is the Medical Director of the Center for Surgical Innovation. In addition, Dr. Broderick serves as Consulting Surgeon on Telemedicine and Robotics for NASA's Medical Informatics and Technology Applications Consortium (MITAC) and as a member of the US Army Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC).

Dr. Broderick is a graduate of Xavier University in Cincinnati with B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Computer Science. He received his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Dr. Broderick completed his surgical training at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he then served on the faculty. obtained significant international experience that includes performing and teaching telemedicine and laparoscopic surgery within the austere environment of the Third World. At VCU, I also started the robotic telesurgery program and significantly contributed to the robotic telesurgery program of Dr. Mehran Anvari at McMaster University in Canada. Through peer-reviewed NASA funded research, I recently had the opportunity to fly a virtual reality simulator on NASA's "Vomit Comet". From flight to surgery, this research suggests simulation will be a valuable component of future surgical training -- regardless of the whether the training occurs during residency on earth or an exploration class mission in space.

Dr. Broderick's honors include election to Alpha Omega Alpha and winning the David M. Hume Research Award from the Humera Surgical Society and the Young Investigator Award from SmithKline Beecham, as well as several honors as an undergraduate. He was awarded extramural funding by SmithKline Beecham as well as the American Heart Association prior to receiving his current funding from NASA. Dr. Broderick is a member of over a dozen professional societies including the American Medical Informatics Association, the American Telemedicine Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American College of Surgeons, Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, and the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract.

As Medical Director of the Center for Surgical Innovation, Dr. Broderick will play a major role in the education of local and international physicians in advanced laparoscopic and robotic techniques. His skills as clinician, educator, computer scientist, and specialist in surgical simulators will advance the application of computers, telecommunications, and robotics in minimally invasive surgery. Telemedicine interjects surgical expertise into the care of patients in remote places that suffer from the lack of a skilled surgeon. Through wireless telecommunications, remote robotic surgery (telesurgery) will allow a remote surgeon to effectively operate on a patient regardless of the patient's location or environment. Such a system will be of great benefit to patients, augmenting the quality of medical services in remote environments, thereby enhancing patient outcome.

Dr. Broderick is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He sees patients at the Medical Arts Building and University Pointe.
