Specialties and clinical expertise
The branch of medicine a provider practices and their areas of focus
I am a surgical oncologist and UW assistant professor of surgery with expertise in the surgical management of sarcomas, skin and other soft tissue and gastrointestinal cancers. I am also a scientist who studies tumors to look for new potential treatment targets. My research interests include translational research and sarcoma and gastrointestinal tumor immunology. I am particularly interested in the body’s immune response to different subtypes of sarcoma and new treatment approaches that combine standard therapies — such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy — with novel treatments, such as immunotherapy. I’m part of the multidisciplinary team of experts that comes together to provide outstanding, individualized care for you. Top cancer care starts with an expert team equipped with cutting-edge knowledge and skills, sound judgment and 100 percent commitment to you. At SCCA, we work together as a team to provide you with the best quality care.
