News Release, CalvertHealth

Dr. Wilfred Ehrmantraut, Jr. of Plastic Surgery of Southern Maryland

CalvertHealth Medical Group, the employed provider network of Calvert Health System, is pleased to announce the addition of long-time community physician and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wilfred Ehrmantraut, Jr. of Plastic Surgery of Southern Maryland to its multidisciplinary surgical group. With more than 20 years of surgical training and experience, Dr. Ehrmantraut is a well-respected surgeon with an outstanding reputation for providing exemplary results and patient care.

“I believe the move will facilitate more rapid specialized care for our patients,” said Dr. Ehrmantraut. “A multidisciplinary surgical group allows the surgeons of different specialties to coordinate our efforts to better serve the patients of our community.” He will be relocating to the CalvertHealth campus in June.

Dr. Ehrmantraut has been a long-time member of the organization. He has chaired the department of surgery at CalvertHealth and served on the operative and invasive committees as well as the leadership team of the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at CalvertHealth and currently serves as the chief of the medical staff.

In solo practice since 2002, Dr. Ehrmantraut said he believes this new alliance will have a positive impact on patient care and the delivery of services. “It just makes sense with the vision the organization and Dr. Theodore Tsangaris have for cancer care in Calvert County. I’m going to be working hand in hand with him. We’re going to be right next door to each other,” said Dr. Ehrmantraut. “He’ll (Dr. Tsangaris) be treating the various cancers and I’ll be doing the reconstruction. We really need the ability to be able to communicate real-time so we can make decisions quickly and treat our patients more effectively. This is a plus for everybody.”

CalvertHealth Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery will remain at its 70 Sherry Lane location until June when the practice relocates to the medical center campus. For more information, or to make an appointment, call 410.414.9844.
