Dr. Hsieh is a genitourinary oncologist treating patients with prostate cancer and bladder cancer. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Hsieh also runs a cancer research lab at Fred Hutch.
I believe the needs of the patients come first and that my role is to help people navigate the often complex world of modern day cancer medicine. This is actualized by listening, utilizing state-the-art therapies, participating in innovative clinical trials, and walking with each patient through the process.

Andrew Hsieh, MD, first experienced working with cancer patients as a volunteer in an infusion center. "The experience changed my life," he says. "I saw the best in people in a tough situation and I was challenged by their resolve." He thus became an oncologist to work with cancer patients and walk with them through their illness and to conduct leading-edge research to find better ways to treat cancers.
Dr. Hsieh is a physician-scientist which means that in addition to seeing patients in clinic, he leads a cancer research laboratory at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center. His team studies how the protein-making factories of normal cells are hijacked to drive cancer growth.
"Our goal is to utilize our fundamental discoveries to develop new strategies to attack cancer cells and diagnose the disease," Dr. Hsieh says.
When he is not in clinic or working in his lab, Dr. Hsieh enjoys spending time with his family, running, going to church, and watching a good film.
