United Hospital Center is pleased to announce an expansion of its neurosurgery services in north central West Virginia through a collaborative agreement with WVU Healthcare and its neurosurgeons.
This partnership, beginning April 29 and known as WVU Healthcare Neurosurgery, Spine and Pain Center at UHC, will expand existing services to include more highly specialized physicians practicing in Bridgeport.
Three physicians currently practicing at United Hospital Center will be joined by four physicians from the West Virginia University School of Medicine and all will practice from the Physician Office Building at 527 Medical Park Drive on the UHC campus.
The new practice will include the following physicians:
· James Colson, M.D. - Pain
· Richard Douglas, M.D., FACS - Neurosurgery
· Todd Harshbarger, M.D. - Neurosurgery
· Terrence Julien, M.D. - Neurosurgery
· Charles Rosen, M.D., Ph.D., FACS - Neurosurgery
· Corinne Stuart, D.O. - Pain
· Bill Underwood, M.D., Ph.D. - Neurosurgery
Vincent J. Miele, M.D. will be transferring his practice to the Morgantown campus and Russell Biundo, M.D. will be relocating his practice from Neurosurgery to UHC Orthopaedics effective April 29, 2012. Ahmed Mahmoud, M.D. will be leaving the Physical Medicine, Rehabilitation & Pain practice effective June 8, 2012.
"We are looking forward to this new and expanded endeavor," said Bruce Carter, President and CEO of UHC. "WVU has a world renowned neurosurgery department and together with the equally strong UHC neurosurgery, spine and pain team, we will continue the tradition of expert care close to home."
