Dr. Blazer III's Care Philosophy

Im a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist who specializes in the surgical management of patients with gastrointestinal malignanciesincluding soft tissue sarcomas and pancreas colorectal and gastric cancers. Many of my patients have advanced malignancies and I am always amazed at their resilience. Their determination to fight inspires me to aggressively pursue every surgical option and to study novel techniques to improve surgical outcomes. One of the most important reasons for patients to be treated at Duke is the emphasis on a team-oriented approach to every patient. Nearly every surgical cancer patient is discussed in a multidisciplinary tumor conference in order to assure state of the art care. When I am not in the hospital my wife and I can be found chasing our two young children or running with our dog.
