Carcinoid Cancer Foundation Presents Eugene Woltering, MD, FACS
What prompted carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumor specialist Dr. Eugene Woltering to become interested in these rare cancers? Listen to Dr. Woltering, currently Section Chief of Surgical Oncology and Endocrine Surgery; The James D. Rives Professor of Surgery and Neuroscience; and Director of Surgical Research at LSU Health Sciences Center in Kenner, Louisiana, talk about his days as a medical student at Ohio State and how that led to his passion as a physician.
In the comfort of your home or office, get to know the experts in neuroendocrine cancers. See them present their ideas and learn the latest improvements in diagnosis, management and treatment of NETs! Each of the NET experts has areas of expertise that may differ from another depending on their area of specialty, their experience and their personalities and conservative or aggressive tendencies. You will find surgeons, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine radiologists, nutritionists and more. We hope these offerings will help you choose the best doctor or program for each stage of your journey with neuroendocrine cancer.
Remember, managing your disease means pushing the clock back...acting when your condition changes or your disease progresses so that you are alive and kicking when the next new thing comes along on the road to a cure! Since our needs change as the disease progresses, you may need the help of multiple experts to get the best care.
You can have a great quality of life while dealing with neuroendocrine cancer if you get the best doctors for the situation at hand. For most of us, that means we have local doctors for routine maintenance and traveling to "experts from afar" for NET specific issues. For information on assistance and help in dealing with insurance, travel, housing and other costs while visiting a distant medical professional, see the following section on our site:
