Biography

After obtaining his medical degree in 2004 at the University of Maryland, Dr. Winer completed his general surgery residency and surgical critical care fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Prior to joining our faculty, he completed his surgical oncology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Dr. Winer's specialties include the performance of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC), an innovative cancer treatment that delivers highly concentrated, heated chemotherapy directly to the abdomen, which allows for higher doses of chemotherapy than systemic chemotherapy delivery. After arriving at Emory in 2013, Dr. Winer built the HIPEC program for both gastrointestinal and gynecologic malignancies at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital.
