Since February of 2022 I am a doctoral student at Upper GI-Surgery, MMK. My clinical work is as a surgeon at Södersjukhuset in Stockholm. The last years I have had an active part in teaching medical students from Karolinska the fantastic field of surgery. I think that the combination of clinical work, research and teaching is truly rewarding.
The focus of my research is to identify modifiable and implementable prognostic factors related to the surgical treatment with removal of all (total gastrectomy) or most of the stomach (sub-total gastrectomy). My PhD project will be based on a nationwide population-based cohort study, entitled the Swedish Gastric Cancer Surgery Study (SWEGASS), which includes almost all surgically treated gastric cancer patients in Sweden from year 2006 onwards, with follow-up for mortality until 2022
