About Dr. Bhagwandin

Dr. Shanel Bhagwandin is a fellowship-trained, board-certified surgical oncologist and Medical Director of the Gastrointestinal Surgical Oncology Program. His expertise extends to robotic and laparoscopic surgery for cancer of the esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, and colon. With his expertise in Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery, Dr. Bhagwandin performs more pancreas and liver surgeries (high-volume) at Jupiter Medical Center than any other institution in the region.

Dr. Bhagwandin is one of very few specialists with expertise in diagnosing and treating unresectable pancreas and liver cancer. Our team will determine if apparent unresectable tumors may be operable and can offer treatment modalities not available everywhere such as irreversible electroporation (IRE) and microwave ablation.

He also has expertise in management of advanced peritoneal carcinomatosis through the application of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) and Cytoreductive surgery; a technique that combines surgery with chemotherapy delivered directly into the abdomen.
