Steven L. Chang, M.D., M.S.
Faculty, Center for Surgery and Public Health,
Health Services Research and Urologic Oncology
Dr. Steven Chang received his medical degree from Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons. He subsequently completed urology residency as well as urologic oncology fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center. During his fellowship training, Dr. Chang earned a Master of Science in Health Services Research from the Department of Health Research and Policy at Stanford University Medical School. Currently, he is an Associate Surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital and an Instructor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
The overarching aim of Dr. Chang’s research is to reduce to overall burden of urologic cancers on the health care system. His recent efforts have focused primarily on decision analysis incorporating economics and quality of life to identify effective and cost-effective clinical recommendations for the management of urologic cancers. These studies have employed both secondary data analysis as well as mathematical modeling in the form of Markov models, microsimulation, and Bayesian networks.
Clinically, Dr. Chang is focused on the care of patients with urologic cancers using minimally invasive surgical approaches with laparoscopy and robotics. He is particularly interested in the management of kidney cancer and has established collaborations with medical oncologists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and interventional radiologists at Brigham and Women's Hospital to treat patients with kidney tumors ranging from incidentally detected small renal masses to metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
