Complex General Surgical Oncology | Male

Care Philosophy

Competence and compassion are the essential components of the care that I provide. For patients dealing with cancer, I coordinate a "multidisciplinary plan" combining state-of-the-art techniques from multiple specialists. In addition to my surgery, this may include gastroenterology procedures, radiation therapy, and hormone-based treatments. I am skilled at presenting these ideas to my patients in terms that they can understand.

in Hopatcong NJ |
Dr. Shrager performed an 8 hour surgery on my husband. His expertise & what he did in that operating room were amazing as was his compassion towards me & my family. Once my husband came home from the hospital, Dr. Shrager checked on him not only at office visits but through emails & even a weekend phone call. We are so grateful Dr. Shrager was recommended to us by our gastrointestinal doctor, & we would highly recommend him!
