I am a surgical oncologist who specializes in the evaluation and management of patients with liver, bile duct and pancreatic cancer. As an expert in laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques, my goal is to provide innovative treatments to allow patients to recover faster with less pain than traditional surgery. I also believe that expertise is essential to offering state-of-the-art cancer care for today’s patients as well as discovering and testing treatments for tomorrow.

My research interests include the implementation of novel mechanisms, strategies and therapeutics to improve the outcomes of patients with liver, bile duct, and pancreatic cancers. I am also interested in examining the role of inflammation in influencing the tumor microenvironment of primary and metastatic liver malignancies.

In addition to my role as the director of Surgical Oncology at the OSUCCC – James, I am a professor in the Division of Surgical Oncology at The Ohio State University. I served as the president of the Society of University Surgeons and hold additional leadership roles with the Society of Surgical Oncology, Society of Asian Academic Surgeons, the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

My objective is to provide hope for patients in treatment for their cancer. This requires comprehensive care for cancer patients that it is personalized for each individual. At The James, we provide a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals devoted to the complete physical, emotional and spiritual support for patients, implementing the most current advanced therapies and oncology research as we work toward achieving a cancer-free world.
