1490 NewsBlog

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital has announced the addition of Coudersport native Terry Foust, D.O. to its medical staff, effective July 14.
Dr. Foust, specializing in orthopedic surgery with emphasis on spine and trauma procedures, will become a member of the Champion Orthopedics & Sports Medicine team, joining Dr. Bradley Giannotti and Dr. Seth Shifrin at their offices in Coudersport and Olean, NY. He will also serve patients at CCMH’s satellite offices in Westfield, Port Allegany, and Emporium.

Dr. Foust graduated from Central PA College, Pennsylvania State University, and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at Pinnacle Health System in Harrisburg where he most recently served as chief resident. Before going to medical school, he worked as a physical therapist assistant. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Osteopathic Association, American Osteopathic Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association.

“Coming to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital offers me the chance to join an established group, Champion Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, with a good reputation. I can do what I want to do, orthopedic surgery with an emphasis on spine and trauma procedures,” Dr. Foust said. Many places can limit your scope of practice but here there is the opportunity to see the full spectrum of orthopedics you don’t find elsewhere. There is top care here and people don’t need to travel. In a small hospital, patients benefit from the personal touch and they know that they’re more than just a number in a huge system. Dr. Giannotti and Dr. Shifrin are incredible physicians. The physician assistants and staff are also top notch and I have learned firsthand that is not found in larger health care systems. I’m coming back to work with professionals like them. It’s perfect for me to be where I want to be and do what I want to do,” he said.

“His spine expertise will complete our musculo-skeletal care. I’m ecstatic about working with Dr. Foust,” Dr. Giannotti said.

“This marks a new chapter for Champion Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, where we can provide complete care from head to toe,” Dr. Shifrin said.

“It’s not often that a community has the chance to welcome home someone like Dr. Foust who has achieved so much and who has the potential to help his neighbors and citizens of this region,” Ed Pitchford, CCMH president and chief executive officer, said. “His presence will be felt throughout north central Pennsylvania and lower New York state for a long time to come. Our hospital is very fortunate to welcome Terry to our medical staff.”

Spinal surgery patients should be referred to Dr. Foust through their primary care physician. Surgical patients have typically gone through tests and treatment that may have included physical therapy, injections, x-rays, and MRIs to show that surgery is needed.
