For patients with advanced-stage ovarian/fallopian tube/peritoneal cancer, the quality of their initial surgery remains the most influential factor related to long-term survival. My research interests include improving the quality of surgical care delivered to these patients, so both short-term postoperative outcomes, as well as long-term survival, can be optimized.

I have published numerous articles regarding the appropriate use of primary cytoreductive surgery and neoadjuvant chemotherapy. These publications have provided clarity into what patient populations are ideally suited for each treatment approach. In addition, my research efforts have helped refine the overall goals of surgical resection, as well as management strategies to achieve the best surgical outcome.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
