Sam S. Yoon, MD

I am a surgical oncologist specializing in the treatment of patients with sarcomas (and other soft tissue tumors) as well as gastroesophageal tumors. I received my surgical training at Massachusetts General Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I worked as an academic surgeon at Massachusetts General and Harvard Medical School for ten years. There, I had a busy clinical practice, ran clinical trials, and led a translational research laboratory — all focused on providing ever-improving surgeries and treatments for patients with sarcomas and gastroesophageal cancers. In 2012, I was recruited back to Memorial Sloan Kettering and joined the Gastric and Mixed Tumor Service.
