Biography

Sajid A. Khan, MD earned his medical degree from the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse. He completed general surgery training at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR and Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore in the Bronx, NY. He also completed research and clinical fellowships in surgical oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY and The University of Chicago Medical Center in Chicago, IL. He is a Board Certified Surgeon.

As a surgical oncologist, Dr. Khan is dedicated to improving the lives of patients with cancer through his clinical practice and research endeavors. His clinical practice specializes in the surgical management of patients with benign and malignant tumors of the liver, pancreas, bile ducts, gallbladder, stomach, colon, and rectum. Additionally he treats individuals diagnosed with soft tissue sarcomas of the retroperitoneum and extremities. His commitment to the care of his patients incorporates a multidisciplinary team approach in addition to state of the art minimally invasive surgical techniques. In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Khan is also involved in clinical translational research studying cancer metastasis. Using molecular and clinical markers, he identifies patients with a limited number of metastases (oligometastasis) who will benefit from curative local therapies, including surgical resection. Dr. Khan has been recognized for excellence in both clinical care and research in oncology.
