Susanne G. Warner, MD (Hepatobiliary and Pancreas Surgeon)
Dr. Warner specializes in liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile duct surgery. Her primary professional goal is to improve life for patients with cancers affecting the liver and pancreas. To this end, she is innovating on three fronts:
1. Scientifically by investigating the potential of oncolytic (cancer-killing) viruses to treat aggressive malignancies.
2. Operatively by expanding indications for minimally invasive and robotic surgery.
3. Through humanities research studying surgeon-patient communication along with the emotional and spiritual impacts of major surgery.
Dr. Warner aspires to “maximize the Mayo Clinic’s multidisciplinary management of NET patients, including appropriately aggressive surgical management when feasible. “
