I am honored to be a part of an outstanding group of people that provides cutting-edge research and treatment.”

Javier Arias-Stella III, M.D. carries a famous name and formidable legacy.
 
His grandfather, a renowned pathologist who served as Peru's health minister and foreign minister, discovered the “Arias-Stella phenomenon” which explained that a reaction previously misdiagnosed as cancer was actually a normal reaction of hormones in the placenta. Dr. Arias Stella's father is CEO of the Arias-Stella Institute, the largest pathology lab in Peru.
 
Dr. Arias-Stella inherited his family's fascination with pathology. “I am passionate about surgical and molecular pathology,” he says, “because it helps in understanding the pathophysiology of diseases and our input can help patients in diagnosis and management.”
 
Educated in Peru and the U.S., Dr. Arias-Stella earned his medical degree at Universidad de San Martin de Porres in Lima. He continued his training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
