Parrish Healthcare Welcomes Dennis Tishko, MD, FACS, Board Certified Thoracic Surgeon

TITUSVILLE, FLA. (January ­16, 2023)— Parrish Healthcare and Parrish Medical Group are pleased to welcome Board Certified Thoracic Surgeon, Dennis Tishko, MD, FACS to the North Brevard community.

With more than 30 years’ experience as a board-certified Thoracic Surgeon, Dr. Tishko’s medical philosophy is rooted in person and family-centered care, believing that educated and informed patients do best. Of this, he states, “Their motivation and understanding are critical to a successful recovery. Education is an integral part of the care I provide to each individual and their family.” He is especially passionate about the early detection of lung cancer through innovative and informative cancer screening programs.

Dr. Tishko has performed over 6,000 thoracic surgeries. He has special expertise in caring for those with a diagnosis of lung cancer. To this end, Dr. Tishko invented and pioneered a minimally invasive surgical procedure called single incision video assisted thoracic surgery (SiVATS). This valuable technique extends surgery to those not usually considered to be surgical candidates and promotes less pain, fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay when compared with traditional procedures.

After earning his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Tishko went on to successfully complete his residency in General Surgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA of which he was Chief Resident. He completed fellowships in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics in Madison, WI and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, OH.

He has been a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at Florida State University for nearly 10 years. Dr. Tishko and his family reside in the North Brevard community.
