Dr. Christopher K Senkowski 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.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

Dr Senkowski has performed surgey on me four times for chronic stomach problems. I am fine and pretty much back to my old self. Should I ever require surgery again I hope Dr. Senkowski is again my surgeon. He is very friendly, explains situations well and his team is second to none! I highly recommend him!
My husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and Dr. Senkowski was recommended as THE BEST surgeon to deal with the issue. He had an esophagectomy last year, the "McDaddy of all surgeries". Dr. S. is the most friendly, down-to-earth, humane, and ultimately CAPABLE surgeon we have ever dealt with. He has stood by us through the difficult journey of dealing with cancer and debilitating surgery. We trust him with my husband's life and his decisions have been sound. He is truly one of the most talented surgeons we have had experience with, and the kindest human being you would want to have on your side during this difficult journey. I can't say enough about him - as a talented professional and a human being.
