TRENTON – Oakwood Southshore Medical Center recently welcomed general surgeon Timothy Burandt, DO, FACOS, to its medical staff and the Downriver community.

A highly-regarded board-certified general surgeon, Burandt has 25 years of practice experience in Cheboygan and Chelsea. He received his medical education at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine before completing a residency at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton.

“I am thrilled to be returning to my roots, while continuing a patient-focused surgical practice,” Burandt said. “As part of the medical staff of Oakwood Southshore Medical Center, I have the opportunity not only to work alongside well-respected colleagues, but also to be a part of Oakwood’s strong network of primary and specialty care physicians.”
