He was the first to describe the bloodless liver resection; an operation where the removal of liver cancer is performed without the use of blood.
He is also only one of a handful of surgeons in the US to perform robotic assisted liver resection using the DaVinci Technology.This allows Dr. Doria to remove liver cancer through a series of 9 mm holes.
In addition, Dr. Doria is an immunologist with an interest in artificial organ development as well as in inhibitory pathways of liver cancer growth.
Dr. Doria specializes in the surgical treatment of:
