Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Younan "I never had second thoughts on becoming a surgeon. Ever since I started using my hands for arts as a kid, I realized I will have to do something in my future where I use my hands to fix things, most importantly surgically fix my patients problems. Dealing with cancer became a priority of mine while going through residency training, especially cancers of the liver and pancreas. To improve my skills and obtain exceptional training, I finished an additional year of hepatobiliary and pancreas surgery fellowship training. I tackle diseases of the liver and pancreas in conjunction with a large group of providers who participate in multidisciplinary meetings, a very important component when treating cancer. My grandmother, who raised me, had the biggest influence on my career choice as she suffered from two cancers. I always wanted to become a surgeon to help treat her and patients like her."
