Meet Dr. Udit Verma
Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in Hematology/Oncology
Cancer therapy has come a long way, but Udit Verma, M.D., D.M., believes it is nowhere near a point to be content with.
My job as a physician is to help my patients get the best possible treatment. I consider them as partners in decision-making, provide them with good counsel, and then follow an appropriate management plan.”
Dr. Verma specializes in gastrointestinal malignancies and treats patients with colorectal, pancreatic, liver, gall bladder, gastric, and bile duct cancers as well as neuroendocrine and gastrointestinal stromal cell tumors.
He is on the Gastrointestinal Cancers Disease Oriented Team at UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Simmons Cancer Center, and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in Hematology/Oncology.
A cancer diagnosis can be devastating news to patients and those near and dear to them. Dr. Verma wants to make a positive impact in the lives of his patients, which is why he chose hematology/oncology as his area of expertise.
Dr. Verma believes that taking care of cancer patients requires astute clinical judgment and diligence, and this can make a large impact on outcome. Cancer care is rapidly evolving, and there is great potential for further research and improvement in the field.
Dr. Verma’s mission is to provide the best possible care to his patients to render them disease-free, and if that is not feasible, make them live longer and have a better quality of life. He treats his patients as partners in the decision-making process. He says that even in the most desperate situations, there is hope and he won’t stop fighting for them.
Dr. Verma came to UT Southwestern because of its reputation for excellent patient care, research, and medical education. Along with his colleagues at the GI oncology multidisciplinary clinic at Simmons Cancer Center, Dr. Verma provides the best possible care to his patients and carries out cutting-edge clinical research. He is sought often for a second opinion on highly complex cases.
