Adam Yopp, M.D., would love to see a cure for liver cancer during his lifetime. Until that happens, he will continue to battle that disease and other gastrointestinal disorders in the lab and in the operating room.
Dr. Yopp is on the GI cancer team at UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Simmons Cancer Center. He specializes in cancer surgeries in the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, stomach, and bile duct.
He is also Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Surgical Oncology Division at UT Southwestern and directs clinical trials for systemic therapy for liver cancer.
A native of Wisconsin, Dr. Yopp brings extensive research and training to UT Southwestern. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and attended medical school at St. George’s University in the West Indies.
Dr. Yopp completed his general surgery residency at Maimonides Medical Center in New York. He finished a surgical oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York before joining UT Southwestern in 2009.
He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, American Hepatopancreatobiliary Association, American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the Society of Surgical Oncology.
Dr. Yopp has published several articles related to liver cancer and has presented his research findings at many medical events, including the World Transplant Congress and the Association of Academic Surgeons.
Outside of work, Dr. Yopp is an avid golfer and runner. He has completed the New York City Marathon, and next on his list is the Dallas Marathon near White Rock Lake.
