Get to Know Dr. Scott Alan Celinski

Dr. Scott Celinski specializes in tough-to-treat abdominal diseases, including pancreatic, stomach, colon, liver and peritoneal mesothelioma cancers.

He believes strongly in the use of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, known as HIPEC, in combination with cytoreductive surgery.

The procedure, which is done only at select treatment centers, has improved treatment dramatically for several abdominal malignancies, extending survival for many patients.

“When you’re dealing with tough cancers, even when the odds are not good, we do have people here who do very well,” he said. “And in my mind, all of my patients are in the group that is going to do well, unless there is something that tells me they are not.”

Celinski often uses minimally invasive surgery to treat both benign diseases and cancerous diseases such as mesothelioma. He also has an interest in melanoma, neuroendocrine tumors, adrenal cancers, gall bladder disease and laparoscopic surgery.

He is part of Surgical Oncology Specialists, a Baylor-Health Texas affiliate in Dallas, and draws from his 15 years of experience to provide the latest, most individualized treatment available.
