Neupane joined the University of Kansas Medical Center in 2008, working into a leadership role that has allowed him to focus on head and neck cancers and thoracic oncology.

A Focus on Multidisciplinary Care

The lung cancer site-specific team promotes a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, allowing each patient to receive opinions from surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, researchers and cancer psychologists. All work together with different areas of expertise in the same malignancy.

The University of Kansas Medical Center also has site-specific teams for breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, melanoma and sarcoma, genitourinary cancers and head and neck cancers.

The teams develop comprehensive cancer care services that guide patients from initial screening through survivorship.

Veterans and International Programs

Neupane also is involved with military veterans through his affiliation with the Kansas City VA Medical Center.

He is an associate professor of medicine at the University of Kansas and is board certified in medical oncology, internal medicine and hematology.
