(Honesdale, July 15, 2009)… A surgeon with family in the area and experience with a wide variety of minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures is joining Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (CHC) and the active staff of Wayne Memorial Hospital. Brian Lenczewski, MD, said he’s thrilled to become a part of the Wayne Memorial community.
“I bought property here awhile back, and my wife and I have always loved the area,” explained Dr. Lenczewski. “I worked in a big 700-bed hospital but it wasn’t for me and my family.”
Dr. Lenczewski, who noted that both his parents and his wife’s parents have homes in the Wayne County/Pike County area, comes to Wayne Memorial from Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio, where he finished up his surgical residency and was inducted into the AOA Medical Honor Society.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Dr. Lenczewski completed his bachelor’s degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook Honors College and medical school at New York Medical College. Dr. Lenczewski began his residency at North Shore University Hospital on Long Island—not far from where he grew up in Queens, New York. He also completed a fellowship at Westchester University Hospital in trauma/surgical critical care.
Dr. Lenczewski performs general surgery, as well as laparoscopic surgeries such as laparoscopic colon resections, hernia repair, cholecystectomy, appendectomy and laparoscopic placement of peritoneal dialysis catheters.
He joins two other general surgeons on the medical staff at Wayne Memorial Hospital. George Tietjen, MD, FACS and Robert Gorrell, MD, FACS, are both board-certified in surgery. Dr. Lenczewski is board-eligible.
