Mehrdad Nikfarjam MD

Mehrdad Nikfarjam MDMy training has been within the field of general surgery, with specialisation in Advanced Liver, Pancreas and Biliary surgery. I received my board certification in surgery in Australia after which I continued with further training the USA in Liver, Pancreas and Foregut Surgery and Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic and Endoscopic surgery. This included clinical surgery at Penn State University, Hershey Medical Centre, Hershey, Pennsylvania, working as a surgical oncologist, treating complex pancreas, liver, foregut and retroperitoneal cancers. Clinical surgery at Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals, Cleveland, Ohio as an Advanced minimally invasive Laproendoscopic surgeon. I also received training and conducted research in the Pancreatic unit, Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts. I have a particular interest in liver, biliary and pancreatic cancer, including treatment of locally advanced or borderline resectable cancer. I also have an interest in re-operative liver and pancreatic surgery and strongly feel that no patient should be denied the possibility of surgical cure, no matter how difficult the case may be. A significant component of my practice is re-assessment of complex and advanced cancers considered by others not to be suitable for standard surgery. I have specialised training in advanced laparoscopic pancreas and liver surgery and am one of the few surgeons in Australia who performs laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (Laparoscopic Whipple's Procedure).

I am experienced in other Advanced minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic hernia surgery, foregut surgery (including laparoscopic gastric & paraesophageal surgery), Endoscopic Retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and direct diaphragmatic pacing. I also offer single incision and needlescopic gallbladder surgery.

I am a founding member of a charity, Pancare Foundation (Pancreas, Liver, Biliary and Foregut Cancer Awareness Research and Education Foundation)
