Doctor Overview

Board certified in general surgery, Dr. Levine’s clinical interests are focused on treating patients with mesothelioma, sarcoma, melanoma, breast cancer, esophageal tumors/cancer, peritoneal carcinomatosis, and gastrointestinal cancers.

A world-renowned expert in treating peritoneal mesothelioma with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), Dr. Levine has stated that “Long-term survival is clearly possible for selected patients treated with HIPEC.” An analysis of two decades of data examining 1,000 patients who underwent 1,095 HIPEC procedures at Wake Forest Baptist – 7.2% where mesothelioma was a primary tumor site – demonstrated a median overall survival of 29.9 months, with a five-year survival of 32.5%.

Levine continues to research chemotherapy, cancer, regional perfusion, peritoneal neoplasms, and antineoplastic combined chemotherapy, while investigating treatment options through active clinical trials.
