“He saved my life...” - Patient

Vijay Trisal, M.D. is a highly-skilled surgeon who draws raves from patients, as well as a passionate spokesman for the unique brand of compassionate care provided by City of Hope. Dr. Trisal appears regularly on our “Ask the Expert” video series, and he's a vocal advocate of expanding the City of Hope experience beyond the Duarte campus with community practices throughout the Southland.

Dr. Trisal says he believes in individualized care, taking into account a person's family, lifestyle, employment, interests and expectations. He makes a point of spending significant time with each patient he treats. “Time is the most important thing,” he says.

He is a member of the NCCN committee, helps formulates guidelines for the treatment of melanoma both nationally and internationally. Dr. Trisal's specific interest lies in the study of novel genes that may help in early detection and treatment of melanoma and the use of isolated limb infusion delivering high dose chemotherapy to treat locally recurrent disease.
