“Cancer treatment can be like a puzzle, trying to fit the pieces together for a successful outcome. Many patients come to me with complex diagnoses. My job is to personalize the treatment and care I provide, according to each patient's goals for treatment and quality of life.”

Dr. Mohamed Salem is board certified in medical oncology (cancer). He specializes in state-of-the-art approaches for advanced malignancies, particularly colorectal and pancreatic cancers.

He empowers patients to be involved in their care and treatment decisions and strives to change colon cancer from a life-ending disease to a chronic disease people can live with.

Dr. Salem has a special interest in treating colon cancer in young adults and is the principal investigator on several clinical trials. He has made key research presentations at national and international meetings. He has published several important papers, some of which have led to major changes in the field and have shaped National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines. Some of his work has led to significant changes in patient care. His awards include an Investigator of The Year award from the American Society of Clinical Oncology and Precision Oncology Alliance.

Dr. Salem received his medical degree at the University of Alexandria in Egypt. He completed residency at Wright State University. He completed a fellowship in experimental therapeutics at the Cleveland Clinic and a fellowship in hematology and oncology at Wayne State University.
