Respected Pancreatic and Hepatobiliary Surgeon Offering Cutting Edge Cancer Treatment
With expertise in robotic pancreatic surgery and laparoscopic liver (hepatobiliary) surgery, Dr. Bose is committed to remaining on the forefront of patient care advances and providing new treatment methods for patients facing a cancer diagnosis.
Dr. Bose is one of the region’s leading surgeons in the use of the NanoKnife System to treat pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, small tumors and recurrent disease. The NanoKnife System is next-generation technology used to treat diseased tissue without damaging surrounding healthy cells. The probe-based technology generates pulsed, low-current, high-voltage electrical energy. This non-thermal electrical energy creates permanent “pores” in the cancer cell membrane, leading to irreversible swelling, apoptosis and cell death while preserving surrounding structures.
Collaboration in Gastrointestinal Cancer with Expert Digestive Health Specialists
Dr. Bose works in close collaboration with the liver and pancreatic experts at Mercy’s Institute for Digestive Health and Liver Disease to provide patients the best possible outcome for their diagnosis.
Mercy Medical Center’s renowned surgical oncologists teamed with the experience of its liver and pancreatic experts provide patients seeking care for pancreatic cancer one of the most comprehensive gastrointestinal cancer teams in the Mid-Atlantic region.

In addition to offering surgical expertise, Dr. Bose aims to provide cancer patients with the knowledge and information needed for them to better understand their specific diagnosis, treatment and outcomes. He has dedicated his career to becoming an ally and a resource for patients facing late-stage and complex cancers. He guides patients through the treatment process and helps them make decisions to optimize their care and regain hope for a better quality of life.
Second opinion consultation and collaborative care with partner physicians make Dr. Bose a trusted expert among both patients and colleagues. Gastroenterologists, medical oncologists and primary care physicians rely on Dr. Bose for his insights, surgical skill and commitment to improving cancer survival.
