Larry Bucshon (pronounced:  “Boo-shon”) was born on May 31, 1962 and raised in Kincaid, Illinois, a small town of 1400 people in central Illinois. His life was shaped by this small town upbringing by two hard working parents. Larry’s father was an underground coal miner and his mother was a nurse. Both are now retired and still live in Kincaid.

Larry attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and, upon receiving his bachelor’s degree, attended medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Following medical school Larry completed a residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he served as chief resident in surgery, and then remained there to complete a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. During this time he also enlisted with the United States Navy Reserve and served for almost a decade. During his residency Larry met his wife Kathryn, who is also a physician and a practicing anesthesiologist in Evansville.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Larry spent his life specializing in cardiothoracic surgery and has performed hundreds of heart surgeries and also served as President of Ohio Valley HeartCare. Larry’s outstanding work and leadership in this field led to him being honored as the St. Mary’s Medical Staff Physician of the Year in 2007. Larry also served as Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Medical Director of the open heart recovery intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital. He is board certified in Cardiothoracic Surgery by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery.

Larry and his wife Kathryn reside in Warrick County with their four children and attend Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Evansville.
