Plastic Surgeon Joins Baystate Mary Lane Hospital Staff

March 29, 2011

Dr. Pranay Parikh, Plastic Surgeon and member of Baystate Plastic Surgery, has joined the medical staff at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital in Ware.


“Dr. Parikh, who specializes in surgery of the hand and wrist, also brings his experience in the full spectrum of reconstructive and plastic surgery to our hospital,” said Dr. Mohammed S. Ahmed, Chief Medical Officer of Baystate Mary Lane Hospital and Baystate Health Eastern Region.  


Dr. Parikh earned his medical degree from Alpert Medical School-Brown University in Rhode Island.  He completed his residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington DC, and his fellowship at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. 


He is a faculty member of the Tufts University School of Medicine, specializing in Plastic Surgery. 


“For me, success is restoring my patients’ sense of themselves,’ said Dr. Parikh. “Whether restoring a breast cancer patient’s sense of wholeness after mastectomy, or rebuilding an injured hand to allow a worker to get back on the job, getting my patients back to the activities that make them who they are is my greatest pleasure.” 


With a special interest in surgery of the hand and wrist, Dr. Parikh is backed by the Rehabilitation team at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital which includes Kevin Smith, a Certified Hand Therapist and Occupational Therapist.  Smith will work closely with Dr. Parikh to promote healing and provide therapeutic techniques to help patients return to their activities. 


Dr. Parikh is now seeing patients in the Baystate Medical Practice- Quabbin Adult Medicine office, located at the hospital.  He is part of the new multi specialty group from Baystate Medical Center providing care locally in Ware.


“Dr. Parikh is among the many medical specialists joining Baystate Mary Lane Hospital in our mission to continue to innovate and grow to meet the needs of our community as we provide our patients with seamless accessibility to the finest community-based physicians and programs,” said Dr. Ahmed.
