Dr. Gannon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gannon "Medical Director, Division of Surgical Oncology, Memorial Cancer Institute I'm a surgical oncologist with a specialized focus on liver and pancreatic cancer as well as other cancers of the gastrointestinal tract such as stomach and colorectal cancer. A portion of my practice is dedicated to treating skin and soft tissue cancers. I also treat benign disorders and conditions of the liver and pancreas, including liver and pancreatic cysts, biliary tract stone disease and bile duct injuries. During my residency training as a general surgeon, I was drawn to this specialty and became dedicated to removing potentially deadly cancers and helping people gain back their health, and return to their family and friends cancer-free. I truly enjoy performing surgery, educating my patients about their cancer and options, and giving them hope about their condition. I'm honest and forthcoming, and treat each patient as an individual. I keep an open mind when offering treatment options and take into account all aspects of the patient's life and health. I'm currently working to expand Memorial Healthcare System's cooperative group trials for patients with gastrointestinal cancer. I am also involved in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, the global leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer. My patients inspire me every day with their heart and strength. Going through a potentially life-changing cancer operation is not easy in any respect. My patients' ability to trust me to care for and help them always humbles and amazes me. In return, I work very hard to treat every patient just as I would want my family members to be treated. I'm committed to providing my patients with the best surgical cancer care that is available anywhere. I've been fortunate to train at the best surgical training facilities with the best surgeons the world has to offer. I know exactly what it takes to provide the quality of care that is needed for optimum treatment of these complex cancers. And that level of care is available right here at Memorial Healthcare System. When I'm not with my patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially watching my children in their activities."

There are good, average and not so good doctors. And if you are lucky you can meet a really gifted talented doctor like Dr Gannon. He operated my colon cancer with minimal invasion so I could leave hospital after 3 days. Actually I left after 4 for different reasons. And I could compare doctors....more
