About Julian Guitron-Roig, MD

Julian Guitron-Roig, MD, is a general thoracic surgeon with a focus in oncology at The Christ Hospital Health Network in Cincinnati. He specializes in surgery for lung cancer and removing cancerous tumors in the other areas of chest using state-of-the-art, minimally invasive techniques such as robotic-assisted surgery and endoscopic procedures. He embraces a multidisciplinary team approach to customize complex treatments for individual patients.

Dr. Guitron’s other areas of interest include surgical procedures for conditions affecting the lungs, esophagus, trachea, stomach, lymph nodes, ribs, diaphragm, glands and soft tissues located in the chest. These conditions include achalasia, diaphragm plication, hiatal hernia, lung masses and nodules, mediastinoscopy, myotomy, pleural effusion, rib fractures, sarcoidosis, thymoma and thymectomy, and tracheobronchomalacia.

Dr. Guitron believes firmly in patient-centered care. “I always tell my patients, ‘Don’t be afraid to ask questions,’” he says. “Since we’re dealing with surgery, I want to give my patients an opportunity to ask anything at all, so I can answer their concerns and help ease their mind about what’s going to happen during their procedure.”

Dr. Guitron received his undergraduate degree from the National University of Mexico in Mexico City and his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine. He completed his general surgery residency at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia, and his thoracic surgery residency at the University of Cincinnati.

He has authored numerous scientific publications in peer-reviewed medical journals and is a member of several specialty committees at the national level. His peers have consistently recognized him as a “Top Doc” in Cincinnati Magazine.

Outside of work, Dr. Guitron enjoys repairing and restoring vintage watches. “I love digging into the multiple gears, springs and components. It’s so rewarding to work on a watch that’s not ticking and bring it back to life,” he says.

On a typical weekend night, Dr. Guitron, an accomplished keyboardist, can be found enjoying at-home musical jam sessions with his children, who are learning bass guitar and percussion. “It brings us together very nicely,” he says. “It’s such a fun way to do something together.”
