Dr. Ejaz is a surgical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, bile duct cancer and other gastrointestinal cancers. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Ejaz enjoys teaching the future generation of surgeons and other cancer care providers as an assistant professor in the Division of Surgical Oncology at The Ohio State University.
Dr. Ejaz thinks that the ideal approach to cancer is with the input of experts from multiple disciplines. This multidisciplinary approach allows for an individualized and precision treatment plan for each patient, providing the best and most cutting-edge care possible. From a surgery standpoint, Dr. Ejaz is a firm believer in the minimally-invasive removal of cancer through the use of laparoscopy and robotic surgery, as these modalities have the potential to help patients recover faster.
One of Dr. Ejaz's main research interests is in the development of clinical trials to help patients receive new therapies that may not be available at other treatment centers. Dr. Ejaz has helped develop and implement several clinical trials aimed at improving the treatment of cancer through new and innovative methods. He is also interested in researching how patients do after surgery as well as addressing variations in perioperative surgical care and quality improvement. Dr. Ejaz's research is dedicated to improving cancer care, and he has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers in high-impact cancer and surgical journals.
