Fisher-Alexander_200x200-(1).jpgBangor, Maine (October 3, 2023) — Alexander Fisher, MD, surgical oncologist, recently joined Northern Light Surgical Specialists. Dr. Fisher earned his medical education from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed a residency in General Surgery, as well as a fellowship in Surgical Outcomes Research, both at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He also completed a fellowship in Complex General Surgical Oncology from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.

As a surgical oncologist, Dr. Fisher treats a wide variety of cancers including bile duct, colon, liver, pancreas, sarcomas, small bowel, stomach, and cancers that have spread to the lining of the abdominal cavity. He treats skin cancers and provides surgical treatment of both malignant and benign conditions of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, and has a clinical interest in treating pancreatic cysts.

Dr. Fisher performs many procedures using minimally invasive and robotic approaches to help patients recover more quickly with less pain after surgery.

“Every patient is different, and every cancer is different,” says Dr. Fisher. “I counsel patients about their unique tumor biology, the anatomy of their tumor, as well as individual preferences, beliefs, and life circumstances. This allows us to partner to make the right decisions for cancer treatment.”

Certified by the American Board of Surgery in General Surgery, Dr. Fisher is board eligible for certification in Surgical Oncology.
