Learn about Dr. Jarnagin

Care Philosophy

I am a surgeon with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, and pancreas.

My clinical research focuses on assessing patient outcomes after surgery and investigating the utility of minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) to treat and stage hepatobiliary cancer. In addition, my colleagues and I are actively investigating new treatments for primary liver cancer and cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). In the laboratory, we are investigating oncolytic herpes viruses as a possible cancer therapy, particularly for liver and bile duct cancer. We are also studying the molecular genetic changes that occur in bile duct cancer in order to better understand how these tumors develop.

Patient Comments (1)
in East Setauket |
$1225 for about 5 minutes consultation, Misdiagnosis my liver abscesses into primary liver cancer, "100% is HCC, do not need any liver biopsy and just schedule liver surgery ASAP." Based on he is "authority" of liver cancer diagnosis and surgery, I arranged extremely expensive liver surgery to remove "liver tumors". But I did second MRI, and finds both my lesions shrunk from 6.8 into 4.9 and 3.6 into 3.4cm in 10 days, and final diagnosis is liver abscess not HCC. Disaster avoid.
