Profile:

Dr. Blumgart is an Attending Surgeon and former Chief of the Hepatopancreatobiliary Service in the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Over the years, his clinical and research work has shaped to the understanding and management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and especially of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. His research has included studies on the surgical management of tumors of the gall bladder, bile ducts, and liver as well as the control of blood loss during major operations and the assessment of risk factors in patients undergoing major liver and biliary operations. He has lectured extensively both in the United States and internationally and have published the leading international text on hepatobiliary surgery, which is now in its fifth edition.
