SRMC announces return of surgeon to the medical staff
SALEM — Salem Regional Medical Center is announcing the return of Board Certified General Surgeon I. Darrell Pugh, D.O., to its medical staff.
Pugh has rejoined Jonathan Pulido, M.D., FACS, and William Lee, M.D., FACS, at Salem General Surgery, East State Street, Suite A, in Salem.
“Having been raised in this area, I’m excited to return home and rejoin my colleagues at Salem General Surgery and SRMC to provide surgical care to the people of our communities,” Pugh said. “I will offer a full range of advanced procedures and endoscopy services, with special interests in breast, gastrointestinal, hernia, soft tissue and cancer surgeries. In addition, I have specialized training in laparoscopic and minimally-invasive techniques for a variety of procedures, which can help patients experience less pain and faster recoveries following surgery.”
A graduate of East Palestine High School, Pugh received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. He then completed his residency training in General Surgery at Doctors Hospital in Massillon.
Motivated by the events of 9/11, Pugh served four years as a Trauma Surgeon and Staff General Surgeon for the U.S. Army, and was stationed in Iraq and Virginia. Following the completion of his military service in 2008, he established his medical practice in general surgery at Salem General Surgery, where he cared for patients as a member of SRMC’s medical staff for nearly nine years. Most recently, Pugh has been serving as a general surgeon at J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital Surgical Care Center in Huntingdon, Pa.
Board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery, Pugh has received various military awards and decorations, including the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Commendation Medal. He is a member of the East Palestine City Schools Distinguished Hall of Fame.
