Additional Information

I specialize in surgical oncology, specifically melanoma and peritoneal malignancy--practicing at Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University School of Medicine and the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center. I completed my medical school and graduate school (MD PhD) training here in 2012. My PhD studies were in Immunology. From 2012 – 2017, I completed my general surgery training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN. From there, I moved to Houston, TX, to complete a 3-year Complex General Surgical Oncology fellowship at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. I spent one year in research studying the anti-tumor immune response, specifically the response to immune checkpoint blockade in patients with melanoma. The focus of my clinical practice includes melanoma/skin cancer as well as peritoneal malignancy including cytoreduction and HIPEC for appendiceal malignancy, mesothelioma, and metastatic colorectal cancer.
