Sherif Abdel-Misih, MDThe James Cancer Center
A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

Make an Appointment
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 was named to the Castle Connolly list of “Regional Top Doctors” from 2016-2018 and rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.
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.

Consulting and Related Relationships
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. Abdel-Misih has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
