  4. Tumor size predicts long-term survival in colon cancer: an analysis of the National Cancer Data Base

    The American Journal of Surgery 209(3):570 (2015) PMID 25601557

    Background American Joint Committee on Cancer uses tumor size for “T” staging of many solid tumors for its effect on prognosis. However, tumor size has not been incorporated in tumor (T), nodal status (N), metastasis (M) staging for colon cancer. Hence, the National Cancer Da...
  5. Establishing a complex surgical oncology program with low morbidity and mortality at a community hospital

    The American Journal of Surgery 209(3):536 (2015) PMID 25576164

    The American Journal of Surgery 209(3):447 (2015) PMID 25770394

    Background Third-party payer reimbursements will likely continue to decrease. Therefore, it is imperative for operating rooms (ORs), often a hospital's largest revenue source, to improve efficiency. We report the outcome after 3 years of a lean, Six Sigma program to improve O...
