David R. Spriggs, MD -- Head, Division of Solid Tumor Oncology; Winthrop Rockefeller Chair of Medical Oncology

As a medical oncologist and the leader of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Division of Solid Tumors, I have two principal responsibilities:  to manage gynecologic malignancies (predominantly ovarian cancers) and to lead our program in early drug development.  

 A critical role of medical oncologists is to coordinate surgery, radiation oncology treatments, and chemotherapy to help people preserve their quality of life during treatment. Since joining Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1993 I have had the privilege of caring for thousands of patients with solid tumors and finding the management approach that works best for them.

One of the most rewarding parts of my career has been the long-term relationships that I have developed with these individuals and their families. I am also deeply committed to providing continuity of care for my patients, from earliest diagnosis through multiple treatments into the supportive care phase of cancer management.
