RRH brings thoracic surgeon to Finger Lakes

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.

Jeffrey Cane, of the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute, is seeing patients at his satellite office at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, 1304 Driving Park Ave. Thoracic surgery helps address conditions of the esophagus, lungs, mediastinum, trachea and diaphragm.

“I look forward to making thoracic surgery more accessible in the Finger Lakes,” he said. “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.”

To make an appointment, patients should be referred by their health care provider before calling Genesee Valley Cardiothoracic at 585-922-3260.
