What is your approach to care?

I always work as a team with my patients, which allows me to provide you with the best and most compassionate care. Fred Hutch focuses on comprehensive care, with experts collaborating across many disciplines. We come together across specialties and share our knowledge to educate you and provide you with the newest and best treatment options. I’m excited by scientific creativity, so I personally track the latest advances in science to ensure that you will have every option available to you.

What is your patient approach at the Liver Tumor Clinic?

I am a board-certified surgeon and founder of the UW Medicine Liver Tumor Clinic, the first multidisciplinary clinic of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. The Liver Tumor Clinic is a resource for all patients with liver tumors, both benign and malignant. We have the expertise to evaluate and manage all types of liver tumors.

For every patient, our team of specialists meets to go over the pertinent data, creating a tentative treatment recommendation for you. We will spend time getting to know you and understanding your lifestyle so that we can work together to create the best treatment plan for you.

Provider Background

Specialty: Surgery

Liver and bile duct tumors

My clinical focus is on the surgical treatment of liver and bile duct tumors and metastatic disease involving the liver, as well as minimally invasive liver therapies such as laparoscopic and robotic surgeries.

Through my research, I actively investigate the molecular mechanisms related to cancer development. I also engage in basic research of tuberous sclerosis complex and lymphangioleiomyomatosis. I have a robust academic research presence at UW Medicine and have received local and national funding to support my research in liver cancer, biliary cancer and melanoma. My goal is to promote minimally invasive approaches to the treatment of liver cancer.

In addition to seeing patients, I am a professor of surgery at UW Medicine and an adjunct professor of medicine, medical genetics and pathology.
