Biography

Karim J Halazun, MD is an Assistant Professor of Surgery with the Liver Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery program at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Halazun came to Weill Cornell Medicine after practicing as an attending surgeon at the Liver Transplant program at Emory University, where he co-directed the liver tumor board, the liver tumor clinic, and the Liver Transplant Data Mart. Dr. Halazun's clinical focuses include surgery for liver and biliary malignancies, liver transplantation including living donor techniques, and use of laparoscopic techniques for liver surgery. His authored publications and current research interests include topics ranging from liver transplantation in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma to developing predictive models for cancer recurrence in patients with hepatobiliary malignancies. After receiving his medical degree with honors from the University of Leeds, UK, he completed a basic surgical training rotation from 2002-2007 at the Yorkshire School of Surgery. He then came to the United States, where he completed his general surgery training as well as fellowship training in liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery approved by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS). Dr. Halazun has received numerous national and international awards, including the ASTS Vanguard Prize, ASTS Junior Investigator Award, the Hepatobiliary and Transplant Fellow Award from the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease, the Young Investigator Award of the American Transplant Society, and the American Society of Transplantation's Distinguished Fellow Research Award.
