General Surgeon, Alessia Tandin, MD, Joins the Medical Staff at Forbes Hospital

Monroeville, PA - (October 13, 2010) – Alessia Tandin, MD has joined the medical staff at Forbes Hospital.

A board-certified general surgeon, Dr. Tandin’s practice includes all core general surgery procedures from basic evaluation and consultation to treatment and management of general surgery-related problems. To reduce healing time and scarring, Dr. Tandin utilizes minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques for the majority of her surgical procedures.

Dr. Tandin attended medical school in Milan, Italy, where she also completed a residency in microsurgery and experimental surgery. A research fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh T.E. Starzl Transplantation Institute brought her to the United States. After completing a residency in general surgery at Allegheny General Hospital, she worked as an attending general surgeon at Excela Health System.

Dr. Tandin believes excellent patient care is team-oriented since primary care physicians, specialists, family members and the patients themselves are integral to the surgical process. She believes that excellent surgical skills and state-of-the-art equipment have to be accompanied by open communication, involving the patient in health decisions, and helping the patient feel at ease.

She is currently working and accepting new patients at Forbes Hospital. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 412 457-0040.
