Brant K. Oelschlager, MD

Dr. Oelschlager is an international leader in the area of minimally invasive esophageal and gastric surgery. His practice is devoted almost entirely to the treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the esophagus and stomach.

Patient Care Philosophy:

I believe in providing state of the art care and at the same time helping patients make individualized care decisions. I also believe that surgical care, even for cancer, can usually be provided less invasively, and therefore patients are able to get on with life (and other treatments) more quickly.
