Drs. Armenio and Somasundar recently featured in magazine

Drs. Vincent Armenio and Dr. Ponnandai Somasundar were recently featured in the magazines Women’s Day, Redbook, and Good Housekeeping in an article entitled “The Best Strategy for Fighting Gastrointestinal Cancer.”

Dr. Armenio is a hematologist/oncologist who is also Chairman of Medicine at Roger Williams Medical Center. Dr. Somasundar is a surgical oncologist who is Associate Chief of Surgical Oncology and Director of Geriatric Oncology at the Roger Williams Cancer Center.

“As doctors who specialize in cancer care, we see tumors every day, but our patients likely see only one tumor in their lifetime: theirs,” says medical oncologist Dr. Vincent Armenio. “People are  understandably devastated by the news of their cancer diagnosis. We assure them that our team will do everything possible to achieve the best outcomes.”

“Successfully treating gastrointestinal cancer is not a job for a surgical, medical, or radiation oncologist alone. It takes the combination and collaboration of every treatment modality available,” says surgical oncologist Dr. Ponnandai Somasundar.  “Here at Roger Williams Cancer Center, a big advantage is that all these specialists are under one roof.”
