Treatment Philosophy

No two cancers are the same, and therefore all patients should not be treated alike. Each patient deserves an individualized plan to determine what is best to treat not only their cancer, but them as a whole. Because cancer care is constantly evolving, I believe patients should be treated at a center where a dedicated team will be able to provide the best multidisciplinary treatment options available. It is through collaboration, clinical expertise, and access to advanced technologies and clinical trials, that patients will have the best cancer outcomes. I trained at Fox Chase Cancer Center, as a fellow in Complex General Surgical Oncology, and therefore I know first-hand the nature of this place and what is available to the patients.

Now, as a surgical oncologist at Fox Chase, I will ensure that every patient has the opportunity to develop their own personalized care plan so we, together, can make it through their cancer journey and ensure the best possible outcome.
