West Penn Allegheny Thoracic Surgeons Mathew VanDeusen, MD and Richard Maley, MD Join Growing Esophageal and Thoracic Institute at Peters Township Outpatient Center

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Officials at the West Penn Allegheny Health System Institute for the Treatment of Esophageal and Thoracic Disease announced today that thoracic surgeons Mathew VanDeusen, MD and Richard Maley, MD will be expanding their practice to the Institute’s new Peters Township Outpatient Care Center location.  

Under the direction of Blair Jobe, MD, West Penn Allegheny’s Institute for the Treatment of Esophageal and Thoracic Disease is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary program that focuses on the treatment of patients with lung cancer, mediastinal diseases, esophageal cancer, Barrett’s esophagus, hiatal hernia, esophageal motility disorders and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Dr. VanDeusen and Dr. Maley are attending surgeons in the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital as well as Associate Professors of Surgery at Drexel University School of Medicine.   Both surgeons are recognized among the region’s leading specialists in minimally invasive treatments for esophageal and thoracic diseases, including the use of advanced robotic surgery techniques.

According to Dr. Jobe, the addition of Drs. VanDeusen and Maley to the Institute staff at the Peters Outpatient Care Center further enhances the program’s capabilities and further solidifies its credentials as a preeminent referral center for advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services.

“Dr. VanDeusen and Dr. Maley are an essential addition to our team.  Their outstanding surgical skills, experience and commitment to patient care excellence will be a vital asset as we move forward in creating a unique patient-centric care model.  Our program brings multiple disciplines together to treat esophageal and thoracic disease more effectively and to ultimately ensure that more people are diagnosed at an early stage when cancer and other diseases can be treated more successfully. ”

Board-certified in Thoracic Surgery, Dr. VanDeusen received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa., and completed his residency and fellowship training at Allegheny General Hospital. 

Dr. Maley, board-certified in Thoracic Surgery, received his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa., completed his residency at  University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and University of Kentucky Hospital, and his fellowship training at University of Kentucky Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital.
