I am a surgical oncologist who cares for patients with gastrointestinal, hepatopancreatobiliary, neuroendocrine and peritoneal surface malignancies. I believe in a collaborative approach to patient care. Every patient deserves a multidisciplinary evaluation to consider the best individualized treatment plan for them. I strive to ensure patients are fully informed so that we can partner together to make shared treatment decisions.
Many of my patients present with advanced or metastatic disease, and I use innovative approaches such as neoadjuvant therapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (also known as HIPEC) to achieve the best outcomes. When possible, I prioritize minimally invasive approaches in order to minimize postoperative pain and recovery time.
I consider research to be an important part of my work, and I’ve been published in journals such as Cancer, JAMA Surgery and the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Through studying patient outcomes and introducing clinical trials, I hope to help my current patients as well as future ones. I also enjoy teaching and currently serve as an assistant professor in Surgery at The Ohio State University.
I enjoy working with a highly experienced and specialized team of providers here at The James, who are passionate about caring for patients with cancer. I am proud to work at one of the leading cancer centers in the country knowing that patients are receiving the best care possible.
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Cloyd has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
The overall patient satisfaction rating is an average of all patient responses to the five questions gathered from the Outpatient Oncology survey, developed by Press Ganey Associates for use in oncology clinics across the country. On behalf of The James, Press Ganey administers the survey to patients who see our providers in an outpatient clinic office.
