|Info||For over two decades Doctor Larry Bucshon has worked to protect the lives of his patients and lead a successful medical practice. His entrance into public service is indicative of his life’s work: a desire to diagnose problems, and provide practical solutions. |
Larry was born on May 31, 1962 and raised in Kincaid, Illinois, a small town of 1400 people in central Illinois. His life was shaped by this small town upbringing by two hard working parents. Larry’s father was an underground coal miner and his mother was a nurse. Both are now retired and still live in Kincaid. Through them Larry was instilled with a strong work ethic, honesty, integrity and standing up for what you believe in.
Larry attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and, upon receiving his bachelor’s degree, attended medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Following medical school Larry completed a residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he served as chief resident in surgery, and then remained there to complete a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. During this time he also enlisted with the United States Navy Reserve and served with them for almost a decade.
During his residency Larry met his wife Kathryn, who is also a physician and a practicing anesthesiologist in Evansville.
Larry has spent his career specializing in cardiothoracic surgery and has performed hundreds of heart surgeries. Since 2003 Larry has served as President of Ohio Valley HeartCare, the tri-state region’s most comprehensive cardiology and cardiovascular surgery practice. Larry’s outstanding work and leadership in this field led to him being honored as the St. Mary’s Medical Staff Physician of the year in 2007.
In addition to his role as President of OVHC, Larry serves as Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Medical Director of the open heart recovery intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery.
Larry and his wife Kathryn reside in Warrick County with their four children – Luke, Alexander, Blair and Zoe. Larry’s life has been shaped by strong ties to his family. For the past six years he has been involved in coaching youth hockey for his children’s teams.
