Daniel M. Labow
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR Surgery, Surgical Oncology
Dr. Labow's clinical and research interests include the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of both primary and metastatic malignancies including gastric and esophageal cancer, pancreatic neoplasms, primary and metastatic liver malignancies, biliary tract disease, colon and rectal cancer, sarcoma, melanoma and breast cancer. Additionally, he is interested in the application of minimally invasive techniques and their role in cancer care. His research and training allow him to understand the entire spectrum of treatments for these cancers, including investigational approaches to help guide each individual patient along the appropriate treatment pathway.
Dr. Labow graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with Honors in Biology. He went on to attend a unique, combined medical program, the Dartmouth-Brown Medical Program, where he earned his M.D. He attended the University of Chicago for his General Surgery residency. During his residency, he took an additional 2 years to conduct both clinical and basic science research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. After completing his General Surgery training, he returned to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to complete his Clinical Surgical Oncology fellowship.
