Kristian Ferry

/ M.D. F.A.C.S

Surgical Oncology and General Surgery

Originally from southern california, Doctor Ferry received his undergraduate degree in general and molecular biology from the University of California-Irvine. He earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin (Marquette University) in 1994. After completing a surgical internship at the University of Hawaii he went on to five years of general surgery training at Baylor University in Texas. He then finished training with a two-year fellowship in surgical oncology at the University of Miami in Florida. Doctor Ferry is certified by the American Board of Surgery, a Fellow of the American college of Surgeons, and is one of the very few Society of Surgical Oncology-trained Surgical Oncologists in Oregon.

Doctor Ferry has enjoyed success in his chosen field in large part because of his personal philosophy that simply centers upon always putting his patient's needs first. His areas of specific interests include melanoma and other rare skin cancers, breast cancer, colorectal surgery, hernia surgery, endocrine surgery, and soft tissue sarcomas of the trunk and extremity.

He utilizes minimally invasive techniques such as single incision laproscopic surgery (SILS), DaVinci robotic abdominal surgery, and endoscopic microsurgical techniques. His methods continually evolve to include the best that new technology has to offer so that surgery is more gentle and surgical goals are more efficiently achieved.

In his spare time, Doctor Ferry enjoys travel and time spent with his wife and two daughters. Tending to the Pinot Noir plants in his vineyard and wine making are among his other passions.
