Dr. Brower says...

I am the Director of our Major Cancer Center and as such I am the Senior Cancer Surgeon performing complex procedures of Esophagectomy, Gastrectomy, Pancreatectomy, Liver Surgery, Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Surgery . In addition I perform Minimally Invasive Surgery Procedures for Benign Gastrointestinal Diseases such as GERD (Nissen Fundoplication) and Achalasia of the Esophagus(Myotomy). Finally I am an expert in Melanoma and Soft Tissue Tumors. I have performed these Surgeries hundreds of times for each condition . I received special training for these procedures during my Fellowship at the National Cancer Institute and as a visiting Professor in China where I learned Surgery specific for Asian American patients with Stomach and Liver Cancer.
