As a dedicated expert in his field, Dr. Cheng received the Vogel award for outstanding graduating chief resident in the Department of Surgery at the University at Buffalo. Dr. Cheng completed his clinical fellowship in surgical oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. He has been involved in notable projects, research articles and presentations to further hone his expertise.
