About

"I focus on surgical treatment of rare, aggressive, or metastatic cancers. For these conditions, treatment is highly personalized. I enjoy working closely with patients, their families, and a cross-disciplinary team of doctors to determine the best therapy for each individual, and to apply the latest research towards improving patients' lives. Facing any cancer diagnosis is difficult, and I strive to provide knowledge and guidance to help navigate these challenging times." — Scott K. Sherman
