Dr. Frantz is board certified in Thoracic Surgery and has received additional certification in Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. After earning his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine, he received additional training with internship and residency in Internal Medicine at University of Vermont. He went on to complete residency in General Surgery at Maine Medical Center and the University of Wisconsin, finishing with a residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery at U of W. He came to Lynchburg to establish the cardiothoracic surgery program for Centra Health and after 26 years performing open heart surgery, he now limits his practice to wound care.  Having raised his family in Lynchburg, he loves continuing to care for members of the community,  old and new patients alike.  When he is not providing care at the Heart and Vascular Institute, he likes to spend his time gardening, hiking in the mountains of the Blue Ridge, and giving back through the volunteer Virginia Medical Reserve Corps.
