You are invited to attend a CCF Facebook Live event with Xavier Keutgen, MD on Monday, March 18 at 12 noon, Eastern Standard Time. Dr. Keutgen, a surgical oncologist with particular expertise in treating neuroendocrine, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal tumors, will be speaking about surgery for people living with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), the importance of finding the primary site, and how surgery fits into a treatment plan. Viewers are welcome to submit non-case-specific questions in advance of the live event as well as during the event.
Dr. Keutgen is Director of the University of Chicago Neuroendocrine Tumor Center and works closely with the multidisciplinary team that specializes in NETs. He is the co-director of the Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) clinical care center and a member of the multidisciplinary thyroid cancer team at the University of Chicago.
When surgery is indicated, Dr. Keutgen uses minimally invasive approaches whenever possible. He performs small- or no-scar thyroid and parathyroid surgery as well as laparoscopic or robotic pancreas, liver and adrenal surgery. Dr. Keutgen also specializes in complex liver resections for metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and pancreas. He has advanced expertise in extensive removal of neuroendocrine liver tumors metastases (“debulking surgery”) using techniques that preserve a maximum amount of normal liver tissue (parenchymal sparing liver surgery).
