Dr. Hernandez-Alejandro Nominated for President’s Award for Innovation

The President’s Award for Innovation recognizes an individual or team who has demonstrated innovation capabilities that have made a significant difference to the effectiveness of the organization. Dr. Roberto Hernandez-Alejandro was nominated for bringing an innovative surgical technique known as ALPPS (Associated Liver Partition and Portal Vein Ligation for Staged Hepatectomy) to London for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer to the liver. This surgery offers real hope of extending survival for a patient population that would otherwise live for less than one year.
