Dr. Alexander A Parikh has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Dr. Parikh failed to inform me last year that my annual post-surgical CT showed abnormalities in my bladder/kidneys. Now, 12 months and another CT later, I have been referred to a Surgical Oncologist in Urology. Dr. Parikh failed miserably. If he had done a follow-up, I would not be waiting to find if the changes seen last year have become cancerous. There is no excuse. He was very irresponsible, unprofessional and uncaring. Vanderbilt Medical Center should not allow his behavior to go unaddressed.
