I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal cancers, particularly colorectal and appendix cancer, and those with peritoneal mesothelioma. I specialize in both systemic chemotherapy and regional chemotherapy given directly into the liver or the peritoneal cavity. My research focus is on the development of new therapies for patients, including molecular-based therapies to improve the outcomes for patients with metastatic disease.
