Jeffrey Fowler, MD, is professor and vice chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Ohio State, where he also holds the John G. Boutselis Chair in Gynecology and is a member of the Cancer Control Program at the OSUCCC – James.His primary research interests have been in advancing state-of-the-art surgery in gynecologic oncology, including minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy and robotics), radical pelvic surgery and pelvic reconstructive surgery. He teaches these techniques to surgeons from around the world. One of his clinical research projects revealed that fluid accumulation in the peritoneal cavity of patients with advanced ovarian cancer is a prognostic of poor overall survival. These ascites may predict a group of women who are more likely to see long-term benefit from the drug bevacizumab. Dr. Fowler has authored or co-authored more than 180 articles in such well-respected publications as Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, Gynecologic Oncology, American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and International Journal of Gynecological Cancer. He also has written numerous book chapters and abstracts presented at scholarly meetings, and he serves on the editorial boards for the journals Gynecologic Oncology and Journal of Robotic Surgery.
