Business Spotlight: Weirton Medical Center is New Home To Top General Surgeons

Weirton doctorsWeirton Medical Center is pleased to welcome three of the region’s top general surgeons home!  James Valuska Jr, MD, Thomas Lheureau, MD and M. Lance Weaver, MD make up the all new Innovative Surgical Group at WMC.  

 The doctors have practiced in the Wexford and Cranberry areas for the past several years and for Drs. Valuska and Lheureau, it’s a homecoming.  Dr. Valuska, a Steubenville, OH native and Dr. Lheureau, a McDonald, PA native, practiced in the Weirton/Steubenville area before leaving for the Northern Pittsburgh suburbs.  Colleague, respected general surgeon Dr. Weaver also brings his expertise as the three move to WMC from their former location in the North Hills of Pittsburgh.

Located only 35 minutes from the Wexford/Cranberry area, these highly trained and experienced surgeons bring their expertise in laparoscopy and robotic laparoscopy surgeries to WMC. These surgeries are used to treat a large range of medical conditions including, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, gallbladder removal, gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and many more acute and elective surgeries.

According to Dr. Valuska, “The team is very happy to join WMC and bring our experience, particularly with the intense precision offered robotic laparoscopy surgeries, to this wonderful medical center and community.”

“Also,” adds Dr. Lheureau, “it is so close to the Wexford/Cranberry area, we can easily commute the 35 minutes from our homes. However, we do stay locally when we are on call at the center.”

WMC accepts ALL major insurance carriers including BOTH HighMark and UPMC insurance plans.
