Clinical Specialties

Dr. Philip is certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS), and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS). She specializes in liver, kidney, pancreas, live kidney donor, hepatobiliary, and auto renal transplant surgery.

Research Interests

Dr. Philip is investigating methodologies of ex vivo perfusion for the preservation and assessment of deceased donor kidney and liver allografts. The goal of her research is to improve organ preservation techniques as well as improve the assessment of organs prior to transplantation, which would increase the amount of organs available for transplant and improve organ function after implantation.
