I’m a surgical oncologist with a focus on treating patients with a variety of gastrointestinal cancers. My areas of expertise include appendiceal cancer, metastatic colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, and peritoneal surface malignancies (appendix, colon, gastric, peritoneal mesothelioma). I’m driven by a desire to pursue effective and less invasive surgical treatments when appropriate, but sometimes surgical therapies require an aggressive, more invasive strategy to achieve the goals of disease control and potential cure.

I serve as clerkship director (Surgery Unit Director) for The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and am an assistant professor of surgery. Like all of my colleagues here, I’m inspired every day by The James’ role as a pioneer in discoveries that get us closer to a cancer-free world.

I’ve presented more than a dozen medical abstracts nationwide, and have contributed to 15 published manuscripts. Currently I serve on the editorial board of the World Journal of Surgical Oncology.

Additionally, I’m a fellow with the American College of Surgeons (FACS), and a member of the American Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary Association, the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and the Society of Surgical Oncology.
