Carcinoid/Neuroendocrine Tumors . . .

Dr. Shafir devotes particular interest in the diagnosis, management and treatment of carcinoid disease and neuroendocrine tumors. He is a Surgical Consultant for the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, devoted to the study, education and treatment of this group of diseases. Each patient is different- no two patients and not two tumors are alike- and, consequently the management has to be tailored to each patient, with particular attention to the type of tumor and extent of disease.

Dr. Shafir collaborates closely with several specialists with vast experience in carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumors, which allows EACH PATIENT to have a complete evaluation and recommendations of treatment, to maximize successful results.
