Originally trained as a mechanical engineer, Dr. Joshua Herskovic was developing medical devices when he realized he wanted the benefits of his work to reach patients sooner. “I found this fulfillment in medicine,” says Dr. Herskovic, Anesthesiologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) near Chicago.

Dr. Herskovic earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. He completed a Master of Science in Basic Medical Science and then his Doctor of Medicine degree at Wayne State University School of Medicine.

His postgraduate training included a one-year Internship and a three-year Residency in Anesthesiology, both at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center. 

Dr. Herskovic has worked as an anesthesiologist since 2008. At a community hospital outside Chicago, he provided anesthesiology care for patients in obstetrics, orthopedics, general surgery and pediatrics. He also provided locum tenens coverage at another regional hospital. He joined CTCA in January 2012.

Licensed to practice medicine by the States of Illinois and Wisconsin, Dr. Herskovic is Board Certified in Anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

At CTCA, Dr. Herskovic works with patients with all types of cancer requiring surgery. “My goal for all our patients is not only to take care of them through surgery but also to ensure they do well after surgery,” says Dr. Herskovic. To accomplish this, he employs the latest advances and regional techniques, such as thoracic epidural and continuous TAP and para-vertebral blocks.

When he is not at CTCA, Dr. Herskovic enjoys spending time with his wife, who is a radiologist at CTCA, and their two children. Prior to his work as an anesthesiologist, Dr. Herskovic conducted mechanical engineering research focused on biomechanics. In his spare time, he continues to develop new medical devices. He also is an avid photographer, plays racquetball, and enjoys do-it-yourself home repair projects.
