    Collapse overview
    Dr. Anaya leads funded research projects that evaluate the association between traditional baseline characteristics and a preoperative comprehensive geriatric assessment with postoperative outcomes of care transitions and health-related quality of life in elderly cancer patients following surgery. He also leads research projects on how to disseminate the use of virtual tumor boards across distant institutions using implementation methodology with the ultimate goal of improving quality of cancer care for vulnerable populations, including the elderly.

    In addition to this work, Dr. Anaya’s team has established two prospective databases derived from a busy surgical oncology practice at the MEDVAMC: the hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) malignancies database and a surgical site infection (SSI) database. His team is currently evaluating different aspects of care for patients with HPB malignancies (special focus on liver metastasis and hepatocellular carcinoma), and examining predictors, impact, and potential interventions for preventing SSI following cancer surgery.
