CHARLES CHENG, MD

About Dr. Cheng

Dr. Cheng joined Fox Valley Surgical Associates in 2001, providing Fox Valley residents with convenient access to a highly skilled surgical oncologist. His expertise allows patients to have extremely complex and advanced cancer surgery in the Fox Valley, surgery that previously required trips to Madison, Milwaukee or the Mayo Clinic. His philosophy is clear: “I strive to stay on top of the latest techniques and make the right decisions to achieve the best outcome for each patient I see.”

As a dedicated expert in his field, Dr. Cheng received the Vogel Award for outstanding graduating chief resident in the Department of Surgery at the University at Buffalo. He completed his clinical fellowship in surgical oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and has been involved in notable projects, research articles and presentations to further hone his expertise. Dr. Cheng’s work has been published in articles in surgical journals and presented at national and international conferences. His work includes Thymidine Phosphorylase Expression in Colorectal Cancer Specimens (Roswell Park Cancer Institute, 2000-2001), Feasibility of Early Oral Feeding Following Colectomy (The Society of Surgical Oncology Annual Meeting, Washington D.C., 2001) and Sentinel Node Biopsy in Malignant Melanoma (The 17th International AEK Cancer Congress, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).

For patient convenience, our providers practice at multiple clinic and hospital locations throughout the Fox Valley and Northeast Wisconsin. Please call FVSA for physician-specific locations.
