Goshen Center for Cancer Care welcomes surgical oncologist
Surgical Oncologist Sharmila Roy Chowdhury, MD, has joined Goshen Center for Cancer Care. She has extensive experience in the surgical treatment of hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers, gastrointestinal cancers, sarcomas and endocrine tumors. In addition to laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, Dr. Roy Chowdhury has advanced training in therapies that combine surgery and chemotherapy in one procedure to treat patients with peritoneal cancer and other abdominal malignancies.
"Dr. Roy Chowdhury brings an expertise in treatment of rare abdominal cancers that is unmatched in our region," said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and Chief Executive Officer. “With our multidisciplinary approach to cancer care, more patients can stay close to home for highly specialized treatment that typically is available only at large academic institutions elsewhere in the country.”
Dr. Roy Chowdhury received a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research at the University of Madras, India. She completed fellowship training in surgical oncology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
