My clinical interests include the spectrum of benign and malignant colorectal pathology, particularly inflammatory bowel disease and rectal cancer, including minimally invasive surgery, sphincter-sparing surgery, and organ-sparing treatment strategies for rectal cancer. I am also a trained health services researcher with interests in quality improvement, surgical decision making, novel surgical outcome metrics, particularly in older adults, and long-term cancer survivorship.
- Benign and malignant anorectal disease, minimally invasive and sphincter-sparing surgery for rectal cancer, total neoadjuvant therapy, organ-sparing treatment strategies for rectal cancer
My research focuses on two primary areas. First, I use large datasets to understand surgical cancer care patterns and outcomes and evaluate hospital performance. Second, I am interested in improving the perioperative care of older adults.
