What’s your focus in oncology?
I am a board-certified surgeon at UW Medical Center and SCCA. My clinical practice is focused on the treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the liver, gall bladder, bile duct, pancreas and upper gastrointestinal tract. I am director of the UW Liver Tumor Clinic and an active member of the Center for Advanced Minimally Invasive Liver Oncologic Therapy (CAMILOT), where I am pioneering minimally-invasive robotic surgery for complex hepatobiliary diseases.
I am a core member of the SCCA Pancreatic Cancer Specialty Clinic and a UW associate professor of hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgical oncology. As chair of the Robotic Steering Committee, I am pioneering minimally invasive robotic surgery for pancreatic diseases. My research lab studies cancer-targeted imaging and treatment using nanotechnology. I am also the clinical director of surgical specialties for the WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH).
