Dr. Nicholas Fidelman is a radiologist who specializes in caring for patients with liver cancer, metastatic colorectal cancer and neuroendocrine tumors. He has expertise in liver-directed therapy, a treatment that directly targets cancer in the liver. He also is experienced in treating portal hypertension (high blood pressure in the veins connecting the digestive organs to the liver), biliary disorders (which affect the bile ducts and gallbladder), urinary system disorders, and in performing dialysis interventions (minimally invasive procedures to restore blood flow in vessels used for dialysis).
Fidelman's research focuses on clinical trials investigating novel treatments for liver cancer, outcomes of commonly performed procedures in interventional radiology, and on improving the safety and efficacy of image-guided treatments.
Fidelman earned his medical degree from UCSF, where he also completed a residency in radiology and a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology.
