BMC Names New Surgical Specialist

12:00AM / Wednesday, January 24, 2007

Dr. Timothy Counihan
Pittsfield – The former acting Chief of Surgery at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester has been appointed to lead the surgical program at Berkshire Medical Center.

Timothy C. Counihan, M.D., a specialist in general surgery and colon and rectal surgery has been named Chairman of the Department of Surgery and Program Director for the general surgery residency program at BMC. His appointment follows the retirement of Parvis J. Sadighi, M.D., who served as BMC’s Chairman of Surgery for many years.

Board certified in both general and colon and rectal surgery, Dr. Counihan completed his general surgery training at the University of Massachusetts and was fellowship trained in colon and rectal surgery at the University of Minnesota. In addition to his leadership role at St. Vincent’s, he had served as Program Director for the general surgical residency program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

He has been in practice for over nine years and has attained the rank of Associate Professor of Surgery at University of Massachusetts Medical School. His clinical interests include colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, minimally invasive colorectal surgery and anorectal disease.

Dr. Counihan has served for seventeen years in the United States Army Reserve, most recently as a Lieutenant Colonel and Commander of the 912th Forward Surgical Team. A decorated veteran, he has received numerous decorations and service medals, including the Bronze Star and has served in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo.

As a surgical educator, he has also been honored and is recipient of the Outstanding Medical Educator Award for 1995 and 1996, Resident Teacher of the Year for 1996, the George R. Dunlop, M.D. Award for Excellence in Surgery and the Brian C. Bednarz, M.D. Award, all from the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

He has published over twenty peer review publications and book chapters.
